Diversity research center has data from survey of 3,696 students
The Center for the Study of Diversity (CSD) has announced a Request for Proposals from faculty members, full-time staff and graduate students who are interested in analyzing data from a survey of University of Delaware students.
The Diverse Learning Environments survey was administered to UD undergraduates in spring 2016. The data set available for analysis includes completed responses from 3,696 students, encompassing over 50 composite variables and 300 coded variables.
Those interested in diversity-related research are invited to submit a short research proposal specifying their interest in the dataset, the research questions they wish to explore and the analysis plan for doing so. Successful applicants will gain access to the portion of available data required to complete the analyses they propose.
Proposals should: address a UD-specific diversity-related issue that connects to diversity at-large; present clear research question(s) and a methodological plan for analysis; and explain the contribution of the research to a diversity-related field and the implications of the findings for UD and beyond.
Interested researchers can find more information, including the proposal requirements and how to access a full variables list from the survey, here.
Proposal submissions will be received on a rolling basis starting Jan. 8, 2018, with a monthly peer-review of the proposals.
