Elaine Howle — the state auditor in charge of investigating the sexual assault policies of UC Berkeley and three other California public universities — requested Monday that UC Berkeley students participate in a survey that measures the campus’s prevention of and response to sexual assault and harassment cases.

The 14-question survey can be taken anonymously and takes about 20 minutes to complete. The state auditor is not required to disclose accounts of sexual assault detailed by respondents in the survey to law enforcement or campus authorities.

Participants are asked about the extent of their awareness of campus resources that assist survivors of sexual assault and harassment. Respondents can also recommend changes to UC Berkeley’s handling of sexual harassment.

The data will be compiled into a public report, though the numbers will be aggregated to protect the identity of anonymous survey participants.

UC Berkeley, UCLA, Chico State University and San Diego State University are in the middle of a state audit that was ordered in August by the state’s Joint Committee on Legislative Audit. Results are slated for release in April.
