West Virginia University
Campus Climate Results Released

The overall goal of the WVU Campus Climate Survey was to collect data on WVU students' perceptions of key social and cultural issues at WVU.   Many questions on the anonymous and voluntary survey focused on students’ perceptions of safety on or near campus, including their own personal safety. The article referenced below from the Daily Athenaeum highlights the key findings from the study. 

What's Happening at the Center?

The Research Center on Violence at West Virginia University has collaborated with the Criminal Justice Statistical Analysis Center (CJSAC) within the Office of Research and Strategic Planning at the at the Division of Justice and Community Services to launch West Virginia’s first victimization study.

The three-year study - funded by a $448,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Justice - came as the result of emerging evidence that sexual assaults, domestic violence and other crimes go unreported in West Virginia on account of its rural cultural, limited service options, high percentage of citizens with disabilities and an elderly population that surpasses the national average.
