Critical Approaches to Campus Sexual Assault: A Conversation with Students

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.
