Staff and student experiences and psychological impact of gender-based violence on campus

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

Quantitative research indicates that gender-based violence is a problem of global significance occurring throughout the lifespan and across all areas of human life. Previous population studies have captured incidence, prevalence and impact but this study is the first to focus on those experiences within a higher education context. The data presented comes from the first multi-methodology whole institution research to explore gender-based violence at a Scottish university capturing both staff and student experiences. This data has offered a unique insight into the ways in which institutions also have a unique duty of care. This should be utilised to raise awareness of the seriousness of the issue, promote existing reporting and support pathways, and improve disclosure, reporting and support mechanisms for victims and those who support them on campus.
