Texas A&M University students have an opportunity this month to help university leadership gain a better understanding of each student’s experiences and opinions about sexual harassment and sexual violence within the campus community.

“Take the Survey” asks students to check their email inbox today for a message containing a link to a voluntary, confidential campus climate survey. Students are able to take the survey today through Saturday, March 2, 2019.

“Aggie student voices captured through this survey will help shape future policies, practices, and services at Texas A&M.  Good participation in the survey over the next month is critical in order to be successful,” Dr. Cynthia L. Hernandez, associate vice president for Student Affairs at Texas A&M said. “I encourage every Texas A&M student to consider completing the survey to help make our campus a safer and more inclusive place to learn.”

This research has been reviewed and approved by the Texas A&M Institutional Review Board (IRB).

Westat, a social science research firm, will administer the survey. Questions about the survey can be directed to Westat through or 855-793-5234.
