The Action Collaborative on Preventing Sexual Harassment in Higher Education is an initiative where more than 60 colleges, universities, and other research and training institutions are identifying, researching, developing, and implementing efforts that move beyond basic legal compliance to evidence-based policies and practices for addressing and preventing all forms of sexual harassment and promoting a campus climate of civility and respect. The Action Collaborative model brings together a coalition of the willing to work on a systemwide problem and to identify and develop innovative and evidence-based solutions.
The work of this Action Collaborative is guided by and builds on the 2018 National Academies report Sexual Harassment of Women: Climate, Culture, and Consequences in Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, which outlines a series of recommendations for making changes in higher education that can prevent and address hostile environments and harassing behavior. To put these recommendations into practice and advance work on sexual harassment prevention across higher education, the Action Collaborative is pursuing four goals: (1) raise awareness about sexual harassment, its consequences, and the approaches for addressing and preventing it; (2) share and elevate evidence-based policies and strategies for reducing and preventing sexual harassment; (3) contribute to setting a shared research agenda for this work, and gather and apply research results across institutions; and (4) develop a standard for measuring progress toward reducing and preventing sexual harassment in higher education.
This annual report for year 1 highlights the Action Collaborative's overall progress toward its four goals and summarizes members' actions during the first year that they considered their most innovative, novel, or significant work.
