Research Participants Needed!

Two upper year students in a research course are conducting a study entitled “LGBTQ+ Students -Navigating Identity through Mobility.”

The intention of this study is to understand the ways that the identity of being an international student can potentially discourage or encourage oneself from ‘coming out’. Specifically, we are focusing on individuals who are international students and immigrants (1st and 2nd generation) from Asia, at the University of Toronto between the ages of 18-23 and identify as LGBTQ+. If you are curious about our project and would like to get involved with us, please let me know and I can send you further details.

To protect your confidentiality between us, please email us directly at joannie.fu@mail.utoronto.ca and kana.shishikura@mail.utoronto.ca instead of commenting on the thread. Thank you for your help!

Survey Participants Needed!

Sexual violence is an epidemic on UofT campus.

Silence is Violence, a grassroots, anti-sexual violence collective at the University of Toronto, is calling for students to complete a survey on sexual violence on campus.  Students in all programs are encouraged to do the survey, whether or not they identify as survivors of sexual violence. This is the first survey of its kind to be conducted at UofT that seeks to understand students’ perspectives about sexual violence on campus.

Please complete the survey below to help us understand how UofT students navigate issues of sexual violence on campus. Share widely with your friends and peers!

You must be in contact with a parent for at least 10 hours a month (including text, phone, email) and be willing to have said parent participate. The study involves you filling out one baseline survey and then completing 30 days of short surveys from home, using an app that you download on your smartphone. We will ask you to do the same thing again in a year and two more times after that. Young adults are paid for the initial survey ($20) and for the 30 days of surveys (up to $60) each year and parents are paid $20 for each survey.
