Notre Dame releases results of 2020 campus climate survey


The Office of Institutional Equity shared the results of the fall 2020 student climate survey Thursday which provided data on Notre Dame students’ perceptions of and experiences with sexual misconduct and corresponding University policies.

The survey had a 47.5% completion rate, up 3% from the last one. All undergraduate and post-baccalaureate students were invited to participate Oct. 5-19. This year’s questionnaire was the fifth of its kind — surveys on campus climate were also administered in 2012, 2015, 2016 and 2018.

According to the survey results, 4% of females and 1% of males indicated they had experienced non‐consensual sexual intercourse as a student, while 16% of female students and 4% of male students said they had personally experienced other forms of non‐consensual sexual contact while enrolled at Notre Dame.
