Research

The Alpha Lambda Chapter at the University of Florida (UF) worked on the Personal Safety On Campus project that aimed to explore students’ perceptions of their safety while on campus during the 2012-2013 academic year. Preliminary research narrowed the campaign focus and brought attention to a possible need on campus. As part of the formative research, a cross-sectional survey design served as the primary needs assessment, and was developed, administered, and gathered by chapter members (the researchers). Analysis of the initial data facilitated the need to collect more qualitative data to further explore students’ specific concerns regarding their safety on campus, as well as determine which safety measures (currently available to students) are utilized.
