Dear colleagues,

We recently announced the opportunity to participate in an NSF-funded project that seeks to learn about the ways a faculty colleague can safely and successfully intervene when witnessing bias in the academic workplace. This project aims to improve workplace climate for faculty by reducing the number of bias incidents and their negative impact on academic workplace climate. The deadline for responding to this survey is Monday, June 15, 2020.

The IRB-approved survey can be found at [https://tinyurl.com/2020UCIAcademicSurvey]. It takes about 12-15 minutes to complete. You do not need to give your name. The answers you provide will remain anonymous and any information will be reported in aggregate form only.

After completing the survey, you will be directed to a separate website where you can choose to enter your e-mail address to enter a lottery for a chance to win a $500 professional development grant. This grant can be used towards any work-related expense such as conference attendance costs, membership dues, or work-related equipment. The winner of the lottery will be chosen after the close of the survey and notified via e-mail.

Thank you in advance for completing this survey. If you have questions about the research, please feel free to contact UNH ADVANCE Program Coordinator, Kate Siler, at kate.siler@unh.edu.

Please endeavor to complete the survey by Monday, June 15.
