This research represents the first steps toward developing a decision-making framework for universities as they attempt to balance victims' rights with the rights of the accused in sexual misconduct cases. Universities have failed to meet even the most basic standards, which has resulted in increased government oversight and public scrutiny. Current guidelines promulgated by government agencies may be effective, but they suffer from a lack of empirical validation. Indeed, empirical research regarding decision-making in the context of campus discipline is scarce. This project was the first to experiment with college students to experimentally examine the relationship between perceived fairness and willingness to assist university officials as they attempt to reduce the incidence of sexual violence on campus.
