Annual Statistics & Campus Climate Survey

2023 Campus Climate Survey

Consistent with New York State Education Law 129-B and policies of The State University of New York, SUNY Plattsburgh participated in the 2023 university-wide biennial SUNY Uniform Campus Climate Survey.

The survey gathered information about student and employee experience with sexual and interpersonal violence and knowledge of policies and resources. A total of 366 students and 249 employees completed the 2023 survey, for response rates of 8.8% and 28.2%, respectively. Both are a decrease from participation rates in 2021, however, the student response rate is above both the comprehensive sector and overall SUNY response rate for 2023.

In the survey, data was broken down by gender categories:

  • Two hundred and seventy one students identified as women, 89 students identified as men, and 12 students identified as transgender and 21 students identified as non-binary. One hundred and forty eight employees identified as women, and eighty seven employees identified as men.
  • One hundred and four students and 15 employees reported that they were subject to verbal sexual harassment in the prior year.
  • Of the students who responded, 80.2% of students (267 student responders) and 88.7% of employees (212 employee responders) indicated familiarity with affirmative consent, 95.5% of students and 100% of employees said someone who is incapacitated cannot provide consent, 61.4% of students (204 student responders) and 84% of employees (205 employee responders) reported knowing where to report incidents of sexual assault, 54.5% of students (181 of student respondents) and 84.8% of employees (207 employee responders) reported knowing where to report sexual harassment, and 46% of students (168 student responders)  and 78.4% of employees (192 employee responders) reported knowing how to contact the Title IX coordinator.

SUNY Plattsburgh, working with SUNY and community colleagues (including students, faculty, and staff), will use these data to improve response to violence, develop prevention programs, and will continue to study the issue. The next climate survey will be administered in the spring semester of 2025.
