Annual Statistics & Campus Climate Survey
2021 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 2021 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. One thousand and thirty-three students and 309 employees completed the survey, for response rates of 22% and 33.7%, respectively. Both are an increase from participation rates in 2019, with student response rates being almost double that of the prior climate survey.
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 fifty-two students who identified as women, 10 students who identified as men, and 5 students who identified as transgender reported that they were subject to verbal sexual harassment in the prior year.
- Of the students who responded, 81% indicated familiarity with affirmative consent, 87% of students said someone who is incapacitated cannot provide consent, 707 students reported knowing where to report incidents of sexual assault, 678 reported knowing where to report sexual harassment, and 75% of students 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 2023.
