Abstract

Existing research shows that female and LGBTQ+ university students face a high risk of sexualized violence during post-secondary education, and international students likely face increased risk due to intersections of race, class, and gender. However, little is known about how to provide culturally safe sexualized violence response services to international students. This research uses an Intersectional Feminist framework and an Anti-Oppressive, community-based participatory action approach to discover how to provide culturally safe sexualized violence response services to international students in higher education institutions. Using an online survey and small focus groups with female and/or LGBTQ+ International student research participants from Thompson Rivers University, this project brings new knowledge which can inform institutional sexual violence policy and practices and identify areas needing further research.
