2019 Cornell Survey on Sexual Assault and Related Misconduct
The 2019 Cornell Survey of Sexual Assault and Related Misconduct was administered during the spring semester to a stratified, random sample of 6,000 students enrolled at our Ithaca, Weill Cornell Medicine and Cornell Tech campuses. A total of 2,247 students completed the 2019 survey for an overall response rate of 37%.
New York state law (129-B) requires that all in-state universities conduct a survey of campus sexual violence every two years. These surveys are valuable tools to help the university assess where its resources can most effectively be applied as we continue to work to educate our students and effectively prevent these incidents from occurring. Cornell remains committed to providing the leadership, tools and resources needed to promote safe campuses and to foster collective efforts to eliminate these behaviors.
