Sexual harassment in higher education is pervasive, harmful, and costly. System-wide changes to the culture and climate in higher education are needed. To advance these efforts, BU joined the Action Collaborative on Preventing Sexual Harassment in Higher Education. Through this initiative, we are working to move beyond legal compliance to evidence-based policies and practices for addressing and preventing sexual harassment and promoting a campus climate of civility and respect. Learn more and register for the virtual two day event.
