Wednesday, July 29 — Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of Title IX, Fielding University Press is proud to announce its publication of The Sexual Misconduct Prevention Guidebook, written by Fielding alumna Dr. Laura McGuire. The publication is the first to be co-funded by the Jean-Pierre Isbouts Endowed Fund for Lifelong Learning, launched by alum Pauline Albert, Ph.D., to support the publication of research by Fielding’s alumni.
In this Guidebook, Laura deploys her lived experience as a sexual misconduct prevention expert in higher education and the military to develop a series of best practices for use on campus at today’s educational institutions. Going beyond Title IX compliance, this guidebook helps professionals to develop effective policies for preventing and responding to sexual misconduct in their organizations. From restorative justice in university settings to ways to increase accessibility and inclusion, McGuire draws from scholarship, real-life experience, and interviews with fellow experts to build a resource that is much needed in the world today.
Please join me and the Fielding University Press team in congratulating Laura with the publication of this important book!
