Environmental Factors Contributing to Sexual Harassment in Academic Institutions of Higher Education

The goal of this qualitative research study is to systematically identify environmental factors contributing to the occurrence of sexual harassment in academic institutions of higher education. Specifically, members of the UC Berkeley campus community are being asked to answer a series of structured interview questions about their experiences with sexual harassment incidents that they either personally experienced or observed at UC Berkeley or as members of another academic campus community. It is our hope that the results of this study will contribute to both theory and best practices for understanding and mitigating sexual harassment in organizational contexts.
