CQUniversity’s Queensland Centre for Domestic and Family Violence Research (QCDFVR)

All CQUniversity students are invited to participate in this survey, which will examine the experiences and behaviors of vocational and university students. In particular, the survey aims to gather data on experiences related to sexual violence and harassment, and how technology is now playing a part in this issue.

The QCDFVR is one of Australia’s leading research groups when it comes to researching domestic, family and sexual violence issues and the research delivered by the Centre helps to inform government policy and guides service delivery organisations in providing best practice support to those who have been impacted by domestic, family and sexual violence. This is very important work helping to bring about solutions to very complex issues within our community.

Completing this survey will help the Centre continue this important work and this pilot study will help to build a foundation for a broader study involving other Australian universities and so too universities overseas. The data collected from this study has the potential to help universities better understand these complex issues improve services for victims and survivors of sexual violence and harassment. The study may also help to guide the development of educational tools to build a culture of respect.

This survey is completely optional and is one hundred percent anonymous. The results of this study will be published on the CQUniversity website later this year.
