From April 3, 2017 through April 24, 2017 SUNY Sullivan conducted the Campus Climate Survey on Sexual Assault and Sexual Misconduct in an effort to better understand, prevent, and respond to sexual violence. The Survey was circulated to students, faculty and staff.

As per SUNY policy (see Appendix E) 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 misconduct.

Results indicated that faculty and staff are generally aware of the policies, laws, and resources. There is an indication that more information, outreach and follow-up is needed to provide up-to-date information to faculty and staff. Of the 74 faculty and staff who responded:

With a response rate of only 1.8% from the students invited to participate, we believe that the results are not representative of students’ awareness. Student responses are summarized in the Results section below, but have not been included in this section because of the high risk of non-response bias.

A campus committee will meet to review survey results and to make recommendations based on the findings.

If you have any questions about the survey, please contact the Deputy Title IX Coordinator Ruta Cole at, or 845-434-5750.
