The Juilliard School’s 2016 Sexual Violence Campus Climate Survey
In Spring 2016, The Juilliard School administered a sexual misconduct campus climate survey. The survey was designed to gather information about students’ personal experiences at Juilliard and to understand students’ perception of Juilliard’s efforts to prevent and respond to reports of sexual misconduct. The survey was sent to the entire Juilliard student population via email. Two hundred and fifteen (215) students responded, representing approximately 25% of the student body. Many of the questions included in the survey asked students to share how they felt about the resources available for victims of sexual misconduct and about training on sexual misconduct policies and procedures for the entire School community. Some of those responses are listed below.
- 72.25% of students agreed that Juilliard is doing a good job of educating students about sexual assault.
- 78.61% of students reported attending a training on Juilliard’s Sexual Misconduct Prevention and Adjudication Policy.
- 74.47% of students agreed that Juilliard is doing a good job of trying to prevent sexual assault from happening.
- 91.89% of students agreed that if they made a report of sexual assault, Juilliard would take that report seriously.
If you would like to review the results of the survey in full or have any questions about the survey, please reach out to the Title IX Coordinator.
