The Lecherous Professor

Sexual Harassment on Campus

How does society view and define sexual harassment of students by academicians? Does the collegiate environment exacerbate the problem and contribute to its current epidemic proportions? What can students, faculty, and administrators do about the problem? The Lecherous Professor addresses these timely issues, including the dilemma of teacher-student dating, newly devised policy statements on sexual harassment from several institutions, and faculty uneasiness about administrative directives on sexual harassment.

"Compelling, candid comments from students and professors backed by revealing cases and statistics, with sensitive discussions of the hazards and possible damage to both accuser and accused."--Philadelphia Inquirer
