Previous Sexual Violence Prevention Campus Climate Survey Information:
Beginning in the 2015-2016 academic year, and in compliance with NYS Education Law 129B, each State University of New York State-operated and community college was required to conduct a uniform climate survey that ascertains student experience with and knowledge of reporting and college adjudicatory processes for sexual harassment, including sexual violence, and other related crimes. This climate assessment affords New Paltz the opportunity to better understand our campus, assess effectiveness of training and education materials and better inform planning and programming that support a safe educational and working environment.
In Spring of 2017, our campus conducted the Sexual Violence Prevention (SVP) Campus Cliamte Survey. You can view our Executive Summary of Sexual Violence Prevention Campus Climate Survey Report online.
