Student Focus Group: Sexual Violence on Campus

The objective of this study is to explore the College at Brockport studentsí perceptions, attitudes, and experiences regarding sexual violence on campus. Sexual violence is a type of violence that may include sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, and dating violence (Carr, 2005). Graduate students from the counseling education program at the College at Brockport will conduct focus groups with current Brockport students to determine the prevalence of sexual violence on campus. Focus groups will consist of approximately six to ten students, and will be facilitated by two graduate students. Subjects for the focus group will participate voluntarily, and include both male and female students, ages eighteen and older. A predetermined set of ten questions will be used to initiate discussion within the focus groups for the subject matter. Our projected findings will determine a need for the college to implement sexual violence prevention programs.
