How should the university communicate about sexual violence and misconduct resources?
Your participation in a focus group will help develop a student-informed communication strategy to support students in connecting to helpful resources when needed. We'll discuss:
- What barriers students experience in accessing resources
- What influences students' decisions to access support resources
Who: Graduate and undergraduate JHU students, full-time or part-time
What: 75- to 90-minute focus group discussion with five to seven other JHU students
When: October 2022
Where: Virtually/Zoom or in person (JH campuses)
You do not need to be a survivor of violence or misconduct to participate. If you are a survivor, we will not ask you to share the details of your experience. The focus of these discussions is to develop improved communication about resources.
Focus group participants will receive a $15 gift card or JHU-branded merchandise of similar value.
This effort is a collaboration between the Johns Hopkins University Provost's Sexual Violence Advisory Committee and the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs.
If you have experienced sexual misconduct or want to learn more about resources available to the Hopkins community, visit the Sexual Misconduct Response and Prevention website.
