In summer of 2016, New York Chiropractic College conducted a campus climate survey on Sexual Misconduct and Sexual Assault as part of New York State's Enough is Enough (Article 129-B) legislation. The College used HEDS (Higher Education Data Sharing) Consortium to execute the survey. The final report, produced by NYCC's Research Department and the Title IX officers, provides information from our students on the current campus climate for unwanted sexual contact and sexual assault; student perceptions surrounding institutional response to sexual assaults; incidents of experienced unwanted sexual contact or assault; and insight into their knowledge of policies, services, and resources available. Information in the report includes campus and off-campus incidents, plus incidents that occurred in undisclosed locations.
This survey and subsequent information is a valuable resource, helping NYCC's efforts to protect our students by improving services and educational programming, and increasing awareness. By being as open as possible (within the constraints of confidentiality), the College hopes to create productive community dialogue and reflection. The Title IX officers will continue in their efforts to cultivate an informed community with the goal of supporting a campus culture where all members can flourish academically, professionally, and personally.
