MISSOULA, Mont. -

Since it went online last Friday, as many as 700 University of Montana or Missoula College students have taken an anonymous, voluntary "Safe Campus Survey."

The survey is part of the agreement between UM and the Department of Justice. It stems from the department's year-long investigation of UM over a rash of alleged sexual assaults on campus.

Students have taken less comprehensive surveys about their sexual experiences, both in 1994 and again in 2007.

"So we're repeating most of those questions," said Psychology professor Christine Fiore. "So that we can compare, but we are also extending our questions about stalking and intimate partner violence, attitudes about violence and dating and knowledge about all the programs that we have."

The surveys will take about 25 to 40 minutes to complete.
