Session Description: Climate Surveys are recommended or required in the latest White House task force material on addressing University Sexual Assault (Not Alone, White House Task Force Report, April, 2014). This symposium will discuss UM's development and analysis of findings of the recommended Climate Survey conducted on campus for the last 2 years. Presentations will focus on: Development and Discoveries in the use of Climate Survey in the following sub-presentations: How to Develop, Summarize and Understand your Campus Climate (Fiore); Findings and Application of Educational Questions of University of Montana Campus Climate Survey (UMCCS) (Costanzo); Possibilities in Developing Specific Follow-up and Studies from Climate Survey (Grove); Comparing and Understanding Student's Knowledge and Attitudes (Pepper); What does Incidence Data on Experiences tell us and not tell us? (Peatee & Jurasek). These five presentations will increase understanding about how to maximize our use of the information that students generously offer us by voluntarily taking the climate survey on our campuses. conducting climate surveys can provide campuses with a wide range of information about knowledge, attitudes and behaviors of students and guide future programming, communications and efforts to address sexual violence on campus. By exploring U of M's experience with the survey and examining meaningful findings, this presentation can help look at ways to use date to enhance programming, responsiveness, and services for students. Finally, it is also important to understand the limitations of surveys and what surveys aren't able to tell you about your students, and the best alternative means to explore more deeply what is important to addressing campus climate when seeking to understand sexual violence on college campuses.

Learning Outcomes:  Participants who attend this workshop will learn: 1) Important information on the use of campus climate surveys. 2) The ways climate survey data can guide further questions and ideas for further exploration. 3) How climate survey data can be helpful in guiding educational programming. 4) Understanding what knowledge and attitude data tells us about attitudes and culture change work ahead. 5) The strengths and limitations of campus climate surveys.
