Student Campus Climate survey
As part of the ongoing effort to make sure students feel welcome and safe at HPU, students are invited to complete a survey about incidences of certain types of sexual and physical experiences in relationships on campus. The survey takes about 10-12 minutes to complete. Please take this opportunity to contribute to the understanding of a very important aspect of student life on campus. Responses will be completely anonymous and confidential. Survey link here. At the end of the survey, students can enter their name to be eligible to win a Fit Bit and other HPU giveaways (survey responses are not tied to the giveaway link). Questions? Contact
