HEDS Sexual Assault and Campus Climate Survey
Beloit College takes the safety and health of its students very seriously. Beloit College recognizes that our efforts around sexual assault and gender equity aim squarely at Beloit College's commitments to inclusivity. Students who experience sexual assault or other negative, unwanted behavior are hampered in their ability to have a rich and rewarding educational experience.
The Beloit College community has been working hard on the issue of sexual assault—deepening and broadening education and prevention efforts; partnering creatively on projects and honors terms and in courses; implementing faculty and staff training; and trying to increase trust in the reporting process.
To learn more about students' perceptions of the climate on campus and students' experiences of unwanted behaviors. Beloit College participated in the HEDS Sexual Assault and Campus Climate Survey in spring 2016. All students were invited to participate. The survey had a 46% percent response rate, which is among the highest response rates among participating institutions nationwide.
Results are available:
- Report showing summary results for all students, for men, and for women.

Students who have been sexually assaulted, or aren't sure if they have been sexually assaulted, are encouraged to seek support. The Beloit College Sexual Assault and Misconduct Policy, available on the Student Policies webpage, has information about support resources and on-campus and off-campus reporting options. Confidential resources and reporting options are available.
