Request for Help/ Participants! I am looking for participants who have been/currently are in a graduate program in Communication Studies: I am currently working on a study at Ball State University in Muncie, IN to learn how Communication Studies graduate programs orient and socialize graduate students to graduate school, their academic programs, and to academe. You must be at least 18-years-old and a current graduate student taking main campus courses to complete this survey. From this study, researchers will develop a better understanding of communication graduate school recruitment, socialization and training practices that are working for students. For the participants, they will have the opportunity to reflect on their own graduate school process and aid in developing disciplinary knowledge. All survey responses that the researcher team receives will be anonymous and stored on a secure server. If you take part in this study, you may stop at any time without penalty. You may take as much or as little time as you need to answer the questions, though we estimate the survey taking about 12-15 minutes. For your rights as a research participant, you may contact the following: Office of Research Integrity, Ball State University, Muncie, IN 47306, (765) 285-5070 or at [email protected]. If you have questions about the study at any time, please feel free to contact/email me ([email protected]) To read the full consent information for the survey and take part, please go to: Thank You for your possible participation!
