Recent series of widely-published sexual harassment at Maulana Malik Ibrahim State Islamic University (UIN) Malang arise a question on how this Islamic campus handles the situation and promotes institutional change. This research examines sexual harassment and the way the UIN deals with it. It employs participatory action research to make it possible for researchers and stakeholders to work together to find out the strategies to prevent sexual harassment. This research obtains three strategies to prevent and combat sexual harassment including comprehensive planning strategies, infrastructure development, and building key partnerships. These partnerships include revitalizing the functions of the academic counselor, conducting campaigns against sexual harassment, building a positive-content website, integrating sexual education with the learning curriculum, and keeping relationships with the surrounding sub-district heads for the students’ control. Further research is supposed to examine and reflect on the result of the respected actions to find out the most suitable prevention, intervention, and policy protocols for Islamic higher education.
