HANOVER, N.H. (AP) - Dartmouth students, faculty and staff are urged to take part in a community survey as part of President Phil Hanlon’s “Moving Dartmouth Forward” initiative.

The online survey, which will be available online from Oct. 6 to Nov. 3, will ask participants about the learning, working and living climates at the Ivy League school. Though participants must identify themselves as students, faculty members or staff members, all responses will be anonymous. A company that specializes in institutional climate assessments will compile the data into a report that will be shared with the public in the spring, along with recommended changes.

The survey is part of the initiative Hanlon announced in January to combat problems he said were “hijacking” the school’s promise: high-risk drinking, sexual assault and a lack of inclusion. Other elements include banning hard liquor on campus; requiring all students to take part in sexual violence prevention programs for all four years; and creating new residential communities.

The college also is developing an online “consent manual” on sexual behavior and a smartphone app to allow students to seek help if they feel threatened.
