This presentation demonstrates how the culture of gender-based violence in a university setting is a function of the gendered power dynamics observed in the wider patriarchal society. Data are drawn from in-depth interviews with university administrative personnel, faculty members, and students to analyze the university community’s perception of the nature, causes, and consequences of gender based violence.
