City College of San Francisco 1997 Sexual Harassment Student Opinion Survey.
City Coll. of San Francisco, CA. Office of Institutional Research, Planning and Grants.
This document describes the findings of a 1997 sexual harassment student opinion survey conducted at City College of San Francisco. Survey questions were jointly developed by the Sexual Harassment Prevention Sub-Committee of the Diversity Advisory Committee and the Office of Research and Planning, approved by the College Advisory Council, and administered by trained volunteers to over 1100 students at the Phelan and Castro-Valencia campuses. General findings include that: over 75% of the respondents do not know the current CCSF procedure for reporting sexual harassment; 66% of women versus 34% of men indicate personal experience of gender discrimination; the rate of sexual orientation discrimination personally experienced by women is about twice that experienced by men; if confronted by sexual harassment, few students would drop a course or drop out - most (68%) indicate they would follow the established CCSF reporting procedure. The committee recommended improvement in student and employee education about types of sexual harassment and reporting procedures, specifically supporting mandatory employee diversity training to impart a common understanding of what does and does not constitute sexual harassment.
