The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) operates a fleet of 16 research and survey ships crewed by a mix of commissioned officers and civilian wage mariners. The shipboard environment presents unique challenges to prevention of sexual harassment and assault. This capstone proposes a policy to reduce incidence of sexual harassment and assault on NOAA ships by partnering with the U.S. Coast Guard to facilitate investigation of allegations and enact punitive measures against guilty parties.
