This Day In Daily History
Sex survey angers students, RAs
Oct. 5, 1984 – A survey currently circulating in residence halls that asks about residents’ sexual histories has some students and resident advisors upset.
The survey, created by a subcommittee of the Task Force on Sexual Harassment, asks questions about students’ past and current sexual experiences. It begins by asking students if they have ever dated, held hands, kissed or had sexual intercourse and ends asking whether students were been sexually molested as a child.
RAs were anxious about encountering students who actually had problems related to the survey. Marvin Parnes, assistant director of residence hall living, said, “RAs are not therapists – if they feel uncomfortable, they can get assistance from another RA, RD or other staff member.”
Sexual harassment is a growing concern on campuses nationwide: A survey at a large southern university in 1981 showed that 15 percent of men and 21 percent of women had been subject to harassment by a girlfriend or boyfriend.
The University president recently issued a statement condemning sexual harassment, and last spring a task force on sexual harassment began to draft the questionnaire.
