Millennium Fellowship Project: Structural Sexual Violence on College Campuses
We engaged in this project to research and document elements of structural sexual violence on college campuses. Within this subject, our cohort sought to make visible what is typically thought of as invisible, namely the mechanisms of culture and policy regarding sexual violence on college campuses. With this focus at the forefront of our work with structural elements of sexual violence, we sought to further explore methodology for analysis, implementing various research techniques in engaged practice. The report below details the importance of this issue, the work we did to advance research on the issue, and recommended steps towards the future.
