Kimberly Wiley, PhD: Erased, A Collective Call to Action


Assistant Professor of Nonprofit Leadership and Community Sciences

Department of Family, Youth, and Community Sciences

University of Florida

Drs. Sarah Young and Kimberly Wiley called on the discipline of Public Affairs to take a stand against faculty sexual misconduct in, "Erased: Why Faculty Sexual Misconduct is Prevalent and How We Could Prevent It" published in the Journal of Public Affairs Education. Academic associations in PA rapidly responded by publishing a Letter to the Discipline, an abridged version of Erased, across the field's journals and social media platforms. The platforms where you may find the letter are listed and linked below.
