UNLV to participate in Foundation of Student Success survey



UNLV has been chosen to participate in a research study with the Foundation of Student Success (FSS) to assess how messages are distributed throughout the institution and measure progress of the FSS project goals.  The goal of the FSS is to increase success of Latino, Black and American Indian students through data-affirmed exercises. UNLV says it’s goals include “better understanding the challenges faculty and staff face in their work to support student success and using that understanding to provide professional development opportunities and resources that address those challenges.”


The five minute survey will last three weeks and be investigated by the Principal and Co-Principal Investigators of the FSS who will collect the anonymous responses through Survey Monkey.  The responses will be analyzed and shared with Dr. Harriet Barlow, the executive director of the Intersection at UNLV and UNLV’s psychology professor Dr. Laurel Pritchard who are both the institutions project leads.  Barlow and Pritchard will then share the overview with participating institutions and the public.  A follow up survey will be a year from now to evaluate the changes in responses.  For more information about FSS, please visit www.FSSawards.org.
