Research and Data

Carnegie Mellon University is committed to understanding students' experiences with sexual misconduct and sexual harassment, and applying that knowledge to our prevention and response efforts. 

  • In 2019, the University participated in an important national survey, along with 32 other universities: the AAU Campus Climate Survey on Sexual Assault and Misconduct. 
  • In 2017, the University re-administered the Sexual Assault and Relationship Violence (SARV) Study in the Fall 2017 semester.
  • In 2016, the University designed and administered the Discriminatory and Sexual Harassment (DaSH) Survey as a means for students to self-report their experiences with identity based bias and/or harassment.
  • In 2015, the University designed and rolled out its first Sexual Assault and Relationship Violence (SARV) Study to all Pittsburgh-based students.
