The University of Iowa Council on the Status of Women is asking all UI undergraduate students to complete an online sexual-misconduct survey in order to help UI officials create “the best climate possible to serve and protect all students.”

The survey has been in the works for several years, according to a UI press release. The council surveyed faculty, staff, and students in 2005.

“One recommendation of the 2005 survey was to resurvey undergraduate students in five years since the original survey showed that among the respondents, undergraduates least understood unwelcome sexual behavior and sexual harassment,” council head Dee Gansemer said in the release.

The UI Chief Diversity Office spent $22,000 on the survey, which will be implemented Tuesday through Dec. 15. The results will be shared in spring 2013.

The 42-question survey includes questions on four different sections: demographics, assessment of UI policy and practices, student experiences of unwelcome sexual behavior and sexual harassment, and students experiences of sexual assault, the release said.
