The Violence Against Women Act Reauthorization Act of 2022 states that colleges and universities receiving federal funding will be required to administer campus climate surveys every two years on issues of dating/domestic violence, sexual assault, sexual harassment, and stalking.

At our core, it is Methodist University’s mission is to foster a safe and inclusive environment where everyone, regardless of their gender, can thrive and reach their full potential. Our commitment to Title IX compliance is driven by the belief that every individual deserves equal opportunities, free from any form of discrimination or harassment. We strive to ensure that our policies, procedures, and practices create an environment that promotes gender equity, supports survivors, and holds perpetrators accountable. Through education, prevention, and effective response, we aim to empower and protect our community, fostering a culture of respect, understanding, and equal treatment for all.

The Title IX Sexual Misconduct Climate Survey is a vital tool in assessing and addressing sexual misconduct on campus.

The sexual misconduct survey is a questionnaire designed to gather information about student experiences around dating/domestic violence, sexual assault, sexual harassment, and stalking. The survey data will help Methodist University identify needs as well as enhance policies and programs for students.

The survey will be anonymous and voluntary, ensuring confidentiality and privacy for participants. Clear instructions will be provided to participants regarding the purpose, importance, and procedures of the survey.

The administration will communicate the survey results to the campus community through appropriate channels, such as public reports, town hall meetings, or other means. The results will be used to identify areas of improvement, develop targeted interventions, and track progress in combating sexual misconduct.


Reports will be listed here once they are completed.
