Rutgers Committee on Sexual Harassment Prevention and Culture Change Report

RU Sexual Harassment Committee Report CoverIn fall 2018, a universitywide Committee on Sexual Harassment Prevention and Culture Change was formed. The group, comprised of 45 faculty, staff, and students, met over several months on six subcommittees to consider and propose recommendations on areas including consensual relationships, bringing greater transparency to our reporting and findings of harassment, training for faculty and staff, and assessment of the effectiveness of our approaches.

The committee completed its collaborative work and issued its report in spring 2019. Its recommendations, which aim to strengthen Rutgers’ nationally recognized commitment to preventing harassment and sexual misconduct and providing significant resources to survivors of sexual harassment and assault, include creating new policies and providing additional procedures and resources to foster an environment free from sexual and gender-based harassment for every member of our Rutgers community.
