Queerphobia at the University of Sydney

The SRC Queer Officers in conjunction with the Queer Portfolio of the USU are conducting a survey to combat discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation at the University of Sydney.

The survey has been up for a few weeks and we have received some enlightening feedback, but we are seeking more responses to greater gauge how welcoming and safe queer identifying and questioning students find the University of Sydney and how useful the services offered by the university, the SRC, SUPRA and the USU are to them.

For the USU, this survey will be used as part of a review into the engagement and representation of queer identifying and questioning students in the USU and the leadership opportunities we offer. The aim of this review is to determine what more can be done for members of the LGBTQI community within our Clubs & Societies, Queer Coordinator programs, events outside of our Queer program, and student leadership roles more generally.

If you are queer identifying or questioning, please take a few minutes out of your day to complete this survey, your responses will help to combat Queerphobia on your campus and shape the way the USU engages with you!

Please be respectful in your responses.

If you have any questions regarding the survey or the review being conducted, you can contact me via email: r.magyar@usu.usyd.edu.au
