Join Dr. Jessica Harris for her presentation, Critical Approaches to Campus Sexual Assault: A Conversation with Faculty and Staff
This presentation is part of the Wave of Change Sexual Violence Prevention Speaker Series.
Dr. Jessica C. Harris is Assistant Professor of Higher Education in the Graduate School of Education & Information Studies at UCLA. Through her research, Jessica aims to disrupt systems of domination embedded throughout post-secondary education. Her research agenda, which focuses on race, racism, and its intersections in higher education, is concentrated on three areas: women survivors of campus sexual violence, multiraciality in higher education, and symbolic adoption v. substantive adoption of inclusion in post-secondary contexts. Her scholarly interests have led Jessica to research a variety of populations and issues, including women of color student survivors’ experiences with campus sexual violence. Jessica was recently awarded the ACPA Emerging Scholar Award, a reflection of the over 30 journal articles, book chapters, and blog posts she has published in the last few years. More recently, Jessica’s co-edited book, Sexual Violence and its intersections on Campus: Centering minoritized students’ voices, was published in January 2017. Jessica has also served as a college practitioner, having worked in Student Affairs at The Pennsylvania State University, the University of Denver, and Stanford University.
