The Schar School’s MPA program is committed to providing a welcoming environment for all students. An important step in creating a truly diverse and inclusive community is understanding
students’ perspectives regarding their experiences in the MPA program.
In this context, we very much hope that you will participate in this survey which is designed to help us understand your perspectives related to diversity and inclusion in the MPA program and the broader campus community. The data collected will be used to help us enhance student experience in the MPA program and the Schar School.
Your responses will be completely confidential and will not be part of any academic, medical, employment, or disciplinary records. Results will be shared only in aggregate or summary form, and no individually identifiable information will be reported.
Completing the questionnaire should take 10-15 minutes. Although the survey is voluntary, we would greatly appreciate your participation to help us do better with regard to diversity and inclusion in the MPA program. If you have any questions about the survey or experience any difficulty in completing this survey, please contact me at [log in to unmask] or 202-262-5204 (cell).
I thank you in advance for your help with this important study!
