The records: MU Campus Climate Survey
Why you'd want them: Phase IV of the MU Campus Climate Survey conducted between 2001 and 2005 shows more than 1,300 students, faculty and staff commented on the pervasiveness and categories of violence and harassment experienced on campus. The report also includes anonymous answers that participants gave that explain how the experiences affected every day life in the MU community, if and why incidents were or were not reported and how officials reacted when they were reported.
Where to get the records: Phases II-IV Campus Climate Survey for 2001-2005 is available at the direct link diversity.missouri.edu/about/climate/2001-2005/mccs-2.pdf.
