Universities launch sexual harassment survey

Students in Denmark are being asked about their experiences of sexual harassment in a bid to understand the scope of the problem in academia and find ways to tackle it.

Universities Denmark and the national students’ union sent a survey to all students at the country’s eight universities on 3 May. It asks about their experiences of harassment, the university’s response and the context in which the harassment happened.

According to Universities Denmark, the study is meant to better equip universities to deal with sexual harassment. “We will continue to have a close dialogue with students about the problems and how we handle them,” Jesper Langergaard, director of Universities Denmark, said when the survey was announced in February.
