Abstract

Although Title IX and Clery Act legislation specifically aims to prevent sexual violence on college campuses, the problem remains persistent and pervasive. According to RAINN, “among undergraduate students, 23.1% of females and 8.4% of males experience sexual assault through physical force, violence or incapacitation.” My research examines institutional accountability for sexual misconduct, conducting a case study into one representative bureaucracy: the University of Chicago. I evaluate the University’s current policy and implementation ability, and find that organizational decoupling is a barrier to accountability for sexual misconduct. I then recommend structural, marketing, and area-specific solutions that ameliorate institutional accountability such that sexual violence against undergraduates may be reduced in the future.
