Well known for their research on the effects of sexual harassment in educational settings, Bernice R. Sandler and Robert J. Shoop are among the first educators to propose specific steps colleges and universities can take to offset the pernicious effects of sexual harassment in the academic community. Together with the other expect contributors to this volume, they have created an up-to-the-minute report on the current status of sexual harassment in higher education, including what colleges and universities are doing - and should do - to address this controversial and difficult issue. The writers define sexual harassment and discuss its legal implications in higher education settings, then explore the actions academic communities can take to prevent sexual harassment and respond to it when it occurs. Comprehensive and insightful, the book provides sociological and psychological perspectives, as well as current legal thought, accounts of actual sexual harassment incidents, and step-by-step guidelines for policy development and implementation.
