Opportunity to join Bass Connections’ project examining sexual misconduct on campus!

Sexual misconduct is disturbingly common in society, specifically relevant on university campuses throughout the country.  While there are many educational and training programs, it appears that they fail to make a difference in reducing sexual misconduct. 

Little research has attempted to systematically examine these trainings and interventions, leaving us with scant knowledge as to which training method and/or other forms of interventions may be effective in addressing this issue.

This Bass Connections project is a part of a larger endeavor to examine these questions and systematically test effective ways of intervening to prevent sexual harassment and assault on campus.

During the spring semester we will focus on collecting data to assist us in better understanding the causes and processes involved in sexual misconduct at Duke and will work to design a variety of interventions and conduct small scale testing of them.

This Bass Connections project will be continuing next year, focusing on larger scale implementation based on the results of the work during the Spring semester.

We are looking for students from different disciplines, who are interested in the issue and have some research background (preferably in social science). Preference will be given to students who will be able to continue to the next academic year (2019-2020).

This can be taken as a course for credit (research independent study) and meets weekly on Wednesday between 6-8pm.

More information can be found on the project’s webpage:

Please send your CV and a short paragraph explaining your interest in the project to Moran Anisman-Razin: moran.anisman.razin@duke.edu.

Deadline for applications: Sunday 1/13
