Survey Research on Sexual Harassment in University Campuses (with Hacettepe University, Ankara)

KOC-KAM, Koç University School of Nursing and Hacettepe University are currently conducting a survey research project on sexual harassment in university campuses. The research aims to understand students’ experience and perceptions of sexual harassment. Expert analysis of the survey results will provide guidelines for the prevention of sexual harassment on campus and a road map for official steps to be taken in sexual harassment cases. The project is initiated in 2013 and will be completed by the end of 2014.
