2019 AAU Survey on Sexual Assault and Harassment at Stanford

Beginning April 9, 2019, Stanford is participating in a national student survey on sexual assault and harassment.

The survey has been organized by the Association of American Universities (AAU) and is being administered between February and May of 2019 on 33 college and university campuses in the US to over 870,000 undergraduate, graduate and professional students. The AAU has contracted with Westat, a private research firm, to administer the survey on all 33 campuses including Stanford. This survey is an important tool for Stanford to measure the prevalence of sexual assault, harassment, and other forms of sexual violence at Stanford, as well as measure student perceptions of Stanford’s climate around these issues. The results of this survey will be used to assess current programs and to shape future policies to encourage a healthy, safe and nondiscriminatory environment on campus.

Stanford undergraduate, graduate and professional students eligible to take the survey will receive an email invitation with a survey link from Provost Drell on April 9, 2019. The survey will remain open until May 10, 2019. Please note that the survey link will take you to a survey website managed by Westat, a social science research firm that is administering the survey for Stanford and the AAU.
