ARC3 is not a membership organization. It is a consortium of sexual assault researchers and student affairs professionals who came together to respond to the White House Task Force on Keeping Students Safe on Campus, particularly the need to develop a campus climate survey informed by all who would use it. Participants met at the Campus Climate Forum at Georgia State University, Atlanta, Georgia, in October 2014. A second, smaller group of participants met a the Madison Summit for Campus Climate and Sexual Misconduct at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, in February 2015.  In Madison, participants developed the ARC3 survey.
