Campus Climate Survey

Consistent with New York State Education Law 129-B and policies of The State University of New York, SUNY Cortland 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.Population surveys were administered by SUNY System Administration via email to 6,442 students, and 1,304 faculty and staff.  615 students and 430 employees completed the survey, for response rates of 9.5 percent and 33 percent, respectively.

  • 43 percent of students who identified as women, 14 percent of students who identified as men, and 0 percent of students who identified as non-binary reported that they were subject to sexual harassment in the prior year.
  • 25 percent of students who identified as women, 0 percent of students who identified as men, and 0 percent of students who identified as non-binary reported that they were subject to sexual assault in the prior year.
  • 88 percent of students indicated familiarity with affirmative consent, 83 percent indicated that they knew where to report, and 48 percent could identify the Title IX Coordinator.

SUNY Cortland, 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. More information about the Survey is available here.
