In 2018, Northern Illinois University (NIU) conducted a survey of all enrolled students to examine stalking, dating violence and sexual violence on campus. This survey was a follow-up to a similar survey conducted in 2016 called the Campus Experiences Survey. The SHARE survey will be conducted every two years.
|Title protections against sexual misconduct||86.6%||30.9%|
|How to report an incident of sexual misconduct||54.7%||30.9%|
|Where to go to get help is someone they know experiences sexual misconduct||52.3%||40.6%|
Prevalence of victimization at NIU has not changed significantly since 2016.
Women students are more likely to have experienced victimization.
LGBQ students are more likely to have experienced victimization.
|LGBQ Students||Heterosexual Students|
Most students did not tell an NIU representative about the incident. There has been no statistically significant change in the percentages for dating violence and sexual violence victims who told an NIU representative since 2016.
Prevalence of victimization at NIU is 38 percent (adjusted to NIU population by gender) or about 6,856 students affected. This percentage is comparable to the 42.9 percent obtained in 2016.
