WNMU officials to review sex questionnaire

WNMU questionnaire

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A controversial questionnaire may not be given to students at a New Mexico University after all. The questionnaire asks Western New Mexico University students how many sexual partners they’ve had, how often they have sex and how often their friends have sex, among other things.

The point of the poll is to help the university adhere to the federal requirements and raise awareness about gender discrimination, sexual harassment and assault. The questionnaire has come under fire at other universities.

The group New Mexico Watchdog brought up the controversy to WNMU officials. They now say they will carefully review the questions before the survey is given and they may choose to take some questions out.

The survey is used by nearly 200 colleges and universities around the country.
