UConn Reports and Statistics
Report Pursuant to Connecticut General Statutes Section 10a-55m
The Office of Institutional Equity (formerly Office of Diversity and Equity) released a detailed report to the Connecticut General Assembly that provides a comprehensive review of its sexual violence response and prevention efforts to legislators. The report for calendar year 2015 was posted on OIE’s website on September 30, 2016 and submitted to the legislature in compliance with state law, and in the interest of informing all students, faculty and staff on this important subject.
Effective October 1, 2015, UConn and all other Connecticut universities and colleges must submit this report yearly in compliance with General Statutes Section 10a-55m (new requirements contained in Connecticut Public Act 14-11, An Act Concerning Sexual Violence on College Campuses).
UConn’s report reflects the university’s deep commitment to sexual violence response and prevention. The report outlines the university’s hundreds of prevention, awareness and risk reduction programs and awareness campaigns during the 2015 calendar year. It also outlines the university’s comprehensive response to incidents that do occur.
The University has continued to enhance training and awareness campaigns for both employees and students in an effort to prevent incidents and also to ensure that students understand where and how to report incidents of sexual violence, including sexual assault, intimate partner violence, and stalking.
It is the University’s hope that this report will raise awareness and provide information about our commitment to both preventing and responding appropriately to all forms of sexual violence.
On September 30, 2015, UConn released the 2014 report to the Connecticut General Assembly, which provided a comprehensive review of its sexual violence response and prevention efforts to legislators for the 2014 calendar year.
