Annual Statistics & Campus Climate Survey
2019 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 2019 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. Six hundred and twenty-seven students and 306 employees completed the survey, for response rates of 11.9% and 28.7%, respectively.
In the survey, data was broken down by gender categories: it is important to note that of the students who took the survey and identified as gender non-binary, the responding numbers were too low to share accurate statistics for this gender category.
- One hundred ninety-six students who identified as women and 37 students who identified as men reported that they were subject to verbal sexual harassment in the prior year.
- Of the students who responded, 87% indicated familiarity with affirmative consent, 73% reported knowing where to report incidents of sexual assault, 68% reported knowing where to report sexual harassment, and 64% could identify 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 2021.
2017 Campus Climate Survey
On April 2, 2017 our campus conducted the Campus Climate Survey. The survey was administered to students, faculty and staff.
By SUNY policy this uniform survey ascertains faculty and staff awareness of policies and resources, and student experience with and knowledge of reporting and college adjudicatory processes for sexual harassment, including sexual violence and other related crimes.
