New lobby group on staff-student sexual exploitation in higher education

It’s been a busy summer. As well as getting a new job, as lecturer in sociology at the University of Portsmouth, I’ve co-founded a lobby group and consultancy to tackle staff-to-student sexual harassment, exploitation and misconduct in higher education, The 1752 Group. To our knowledge, we are the only group in the country working on this issue, and as there is a great lack of expertise around this issue in the UK, we think our services are badly needed!

You can read more on our website, including what our name means, and you can read about what the problem is and what we think needs to happen in a comment piece I’ve written for the WonkHE site.
