Sexual Harassment Survey Results
|The University of Kansas is committed to fostering an environment where all feel safe to live, study, work, and play.
In the Spring of 2017, the university conducted its fifth survey on sexual harassment to assess student experiences and concerns. We partnered with the Heartland Project along with seven other schools of higher education in Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska. The Heartland Project conducted a Sexual Assault & Violence Survey to provide the university with important information on campus sexual assault.
Results from the 2017 survey are publicly available and are being used to gauge effectiveness of programs aimed at educating all members of the campus community about this important issue.
The University of Kansas prohibits sexual harassment and is committed to preventing, and correcting incidents of harassment, including sexual harassment and sexual assault. Sexual harassment, sexual violence, and a hostile environment because of sex are forms of sex discrimination and should be reported.
