I am a doctoral student working on my dissertation research project as part of the Executive Doctorate in Business Administration program at the Crummer Graduate School of Business, Rollins College, Winter Park, Florida. My research necessitates surveying STEM-related Ph.D. students. I am seeking responses from international (non-U.S. citizen) Ph.D. students from institutions across the United States.
Various factors help and hinder the adjustment of international students when they come to the United States in pursuit of a higher education. I have chosen Ph.D. STEM students to study because of the potential impact they have on innovation and technology in the U.S. My goal in gathering this information is to gain insights that can later benefit Academia, Industry and Government when addressing policies that encourage global student and skilled worker migration.
Your school has been identified by the National Science Foundation as a top 20 doctorate-granting institution of STEM-related Ph.D. recipients holding temporary visas and therefore is crucial to the study. Would you please help me complete this research project by emailing the survey link (see below) to your international Ph.D. students and encouraging them to participate? The survey is relatively short, taking only 10-15 minutes to complete.
Please be assured that all survey responses are anonymous and will be kept strictly confidential. In appreciation for student participation, a $50 gift card from AMAZON will be randomly awarded to one student for every fifty students who participate and complete the survey.
Attached you will find the IRB approval from Rollins College for the research project. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at my email or phone number below.
