Dr. Sarah S. Hurtado received her Ph.D. from Indiana University Bloomington in Higher Education. Her primary research agenda is focused in two areas: critically examining the replication of rape culture within colleges and universities and leveraging faculty members to address issues of inequity. She is committed to investigating the ways institutions contribute to the persistence of inequity that leads to sexual violence and identifying necessary solutions for addressing this issue. She is also part of a research team working with the National Survey of Student Engagement and ACUHO-I to better understand the relationship between a student’s living environment, engagement at their institution, and their persistence.
