Survey on Self-disclosure of Equity Group Status

This research is being done to learn more about the reasons for disclosure and non-disclosure of equity group membership. Whether or not you have disclosed this information to the university, we are particularly interested in students who identify as:

  • Indigenous students (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island students)
  • Students from non-English speaking backgrounds (Australian citizens or permanent residents) who speak a language other than English at home)
  • Students with disabilities

Information about non-disclosure of equity group membership will help us improve services for students and estimate the true impact of existing measures.

Taking part in this research study is optional. We are looking for people who want to take part in this research and who are:

  • Over 18 years of age
  • Are Australian citizens or permanent residents
