Title IX Sexual Misconduct

Since the Office of Civil Rights released the “Title IX Dear Colleague Letter” in 2011, administrators have worked tirelessly to provide Title IX compliant processes and procedures to resolve issues of sexual misconduct on their campuses. Recently, national leaders called for greater understanding of the sexual misconduct climate on campuses. These new demands place greater pressure on time pressed administrators to gather data to better understand what is happening on their campuses.

At eduOutcomes, we have created an affordable solution to this problem, freeing administrators from the added burden of gathering and analyzing data related to sexual misconduct. The National Sexual Misconduct Campus Climate Survey (NSMCCS) is designed to provide administrators the answers they need to understand the climate around Title IX Sexual Misconduct issues on their campus.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the NSMCCS work?

Data collection for the NSMCC occurs during any six week period of the academic year. eduOutcomes handles all correspondence and communications in the data collection process. We ask that participating institutions provide a list of of email addresses of the students who you would like to invite to take the survey; eduOutcomes consultants handle the rest.

Only names and email addresses will be provided to eduOutcomes. No student ID numbers or social security numbers are collected. Students will be invited up to three times to participate in the survey. A structure for awarding incentives can also be accommodated. Participating institutions receive a report that details specific analysis of your institutions responses. In addition, participating institutions will receive access to a report detailing aggregate findings from all institutions that administered the NSMCC. We also provide you your institution’s raw data, allowing additional analysis by you, your staff, or other members of your campus community.

What is evaluated?

The NSMCCS is comprised of five parts. The first two parts ask students to indicate if they have personally experienced different types of sexual misconduct and if so, the frequency of the behavior and how recent the behavior occurred. Students also indicate the types of sexual misconduct they have observed others experience, as well as the frequency and how recent the behavior occurred.

Additional sections ask students to indicate their familiarity with sexual misconduct and harassment reporting processes on your campus and student perceptions of the broader environment on campus. For those students who indicate they have experienced the sexual assault/harassment grievance process, students are given the opportunity to provide their feedback on the efficacy of the process. Finally, demographic data about students is collected in the final section.

Students who participate in the assessment are encouraged to contact their Title IX coordinator or other campus resources if they become uncomfortable or concerned about any of the items in the questionnaire.

Can the questionnaires be changed to fit my needs?

Minor changes in language may be accommodated. Up to five additional questions may be added to the NSMCCS for a small fee per item.
