The Survey Results showed 4.7 % of female students, 0 % of male students, and 0 % of gender non-binary students reported that they were subject to sexual assault in the prior year. 77.2 % of students indicated familiarity with affirmative consent, 56.7 % indicated that they knew where to report, and 34.8 %could identify the Title IX Coordinator.
