staff sexual misconduct & the duty of care- what should higher education institutions be doing?

‘Addressing staff-student sexual misconduct is not only about protecting and supporting particular students who may disclose or report this, but also about protecting other students and staff who have contact with the same member of staff. Evidence from the UK and the US (Bull and Rye, 2018; Cantalupo and Kidder, 2017) suggests that many perpetrators of staff sexual misconduct are serial (repeat) harassers targeting multiple students or staff members, either simultaneously or in subsequent years, and therefore the safeguarding risk to other students and staff needs to be addressed.’
