Integrating disability and chronic illness into university: Lecturer and student perspectives

ANU PhD (Sociology, Centre for Social Research and Methods) student Giverney Ainscough is investigating teaching academics’ and students’ experiences and perspectives on the integration of chronic illness and disability into university.

Giverney is looking for students and staff here at the ANU to participate in a one-off online survey to identify the perspectives and experiences of all students and teaching academics on the topic of disability and chronic illness integration at university. She is hoping you might be willing to help by participating in a one-off online survey lasting no more than 10 minutes.

Participation is voluntary. Participation or non-participation will not impact your university status. All information will be treated in strict confidence as far as the law allows and will be non-identifiable at publication.

More detailed information can be found on Dropbox:

If you would like to participate in the survey, you can do so here:

If you have any questions, please contact Giverney at: or 02) 62150479.

Her supervisor, Professor Bruce Smyth, can be contacted

The ethical aspects of this research have been approved by the Australian National University Human Ethics Committee (Protocol 2018/730).

Many thanks on Giverney’s behalf for considering this request.
