Join study on how students describe and experience intimate partner violence

McCluskey Center for Violence Prevention is seeking participants for a comprehensive landscape study of how students at the University of Utah understand and discuss campus intimate partner violence.

Campus Intimate Partner Violence (CIPV) impacts significant numbers of students on college and university campuses across the U.S. Unfortunately, college students may not identify their experiences with intimate partner violence as such because the language they use to describe their experiences may differ from educational materials university administrators use to describe CIPV.

The McCluskey Center for Violence Prevention is conducting a research study called, “How College Students Describe Intimate Partner Violence.” The study is aimed at better understanding how college students understand and describe issues of relationship, dating and domestic violence in order to do a better job educating students about the complexities of relationship violence.

Current U students are invited to participate in focus groups via Zoom to better understand their perspectives. If you are interested and willing to participate, please register for a focus group on the dates listed below or via this link. One student in each focus group will win a $50 Amazon gift card as an incentive for participating.

Thursday, March 4, 11-12:15 p.m.

Tuesday, March 9, 4-5:15 p.m.

The principal investigators for this project are Chris Linder, Educational Leadership & Policy, College of Education; Jessie Richards, Management, Eccles College of Business; and Heather Melton, Sociology, College of Social and Behavioral Science.
