dc.description.abstract Since the early 1970's, there has been an increasing awareness of the problem of sexual harassment both, in the workplace and, more recently, in academia. Although this attention has primarily focused on employer-employee and professor-student interactions, there has been one area which has been neglected in the research literature. This area is the student-student interaction or peer harassment.Therefore, the purpose of this exploratory study was to examine the prevalence of peer harassment by measuring the following areas: students' definitions of sexual harassment, attitudes toward the causes and seriousness of sexual harassment, personal experiences with regards to initiating as well as experiencing sexual harassment, response to sexual harassment, and the impact of sexual harassment on students' academic experiences as well as on their personal lives.The sample consisted of 187 undergraduate students enrolled in sociology classes at Ball State University during the spring semester of 1992. The statistical procedures that were used for this study consisted of balance indexes and crosstabulations.
