AGGIES, WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
FEBRUARY 1, 2019 CHECK YOUR EMAIL FOR A LINK TO TAKE A SURVEY ABOUT SEXUAL ASSAULT AND MISCONDUCT ON CAMPUS.

Sexual assault and misconduct are issues that continue to impact colleges and universities across the country. It is up to us – students, faculty, and staff – to Step In as active participants and Stand Up to end sexual harassment and sexual violence in our community.

In order to get an accurate picture of the experiences and opinions of our students, please respond to a climate survey on sexual assault and sexual misconduct. The results of the climate survey will be used to guide policies and practices to encourage a healthy, safe and nondiscriminatory environment at Texas A&M University. 

It is important that your voice be heard, even if you believe these issues do not directly affect you or someone you know.

The survey closes on Saturday, March 2, 2019.

CHECK YOUR TAMU.EDU INBOX FOR AN EMAIL CONTAINING THE LINK TO THE SURVEY.
Your individual responses will be treated as confidential and your participation in this survey is completely voluntary.  This research has been reviewed and approved by the Texas A&M Institutional Review Board (IRB).
