- Participation in the survey is completely voluntary. Only the first question is required of participants, as this first question establishes the respondant's role at the College as student, faculty, or staff. Participants may skip any other questions they do not wish to answer.
- Census survey: All members of the Swarthmore College Campus Community, including students, staff, and faculty, will be invited to participate in this survey. This approach will give researchers the most complete understanding of the campus culture and climate.
- Accessible: The survey will be available online, both web and mobile, and in print, in the spring 2015 semester.
- Confidential: Researchers will not be able to identify individual participants.
