This chapter reports on some results of a research project conducted between October 2008 and August 2009 with the aim of mapping third stream activities at Australian Catholic University (ACU). The impetus for the project was a request from the Vice Chancellor for a report on the number, type and incidence of third stream activities in which ACU staff were involved. As part of the project, the researchers developed an online survey that asked respondents about the number and type of third stream activities they were involved in and their perceptions of factors that either encouraged or discouraged participation. The answers to the survey were analysed with the intention of determining the characteristics of staff likely to participate in third stream activities, the barriers to such participation and reasons for participation and non-participation.
