Dear Colleague,

The editors of Campus Safety and Student Development would like your help in our survey of university and college administrators to find out what schools are doing to reduce the risk of campus violence, sexual harassment and sexual assault. We would greatly appreciate your taking time to answer our questionnaire.  The results will be published in an upcoming issue of CSSD.

There are two surveys.  The first deals with your institution's policies and responses to antisocial or violent behavior.  The second examines your institution's policies with respect to sexual misconduct.  Each survey consists of 10 brief questions.  So far, the average time to complete each survey has been just less than 6 minutes.

Follow these links to take the surveys:

Part I: Campus Violence

Part II: Sexual Misconduct

Thanks in advance for participating.


Ralph Gerstein, J.D., Editor

P.S. A survey like this necessarily requires answers that are brief.  If you'd like to tell us more about your institution's policies and experiences, I'd welcome the chance to discuss them with you.  If you're interested, email me at
