Lurie College of Education faculty Robert Marx and Kyoung Mi Choi will conduct training sessions for SJSU faculty, administrators, and staff around LGBTQ+ support and inclusion at SJSU. In preparation for that training, they are seeking current SJSU students who identify as LGBTQ+ to participate in their research about their experiences on campus and in class, as well as their suggestions for how SJSU could be improved. All the data they collect will be confidential, and your name will not be associated with any of your responses. Your responses may be shared with members of our campus community, including professors, staff, and administrators in the College of Education and across campus, but no identifying information will be included. To share your input with Dr. Marx and Dr. Choi, please complete this brief Google form. If you’re taking this survey on a mobile device, please turn it sideways [landscape mode] so that you can see all response options.
At the end of the survey, there are two places for you to include your name and email address:
- if you’d like to be interviewed via Zoom about your experiences and
- if you’d like to participate in the trainings for faculty and staff by joining and sharing your experiences and
ideas for how SJSU can be more LGBTQ+ inclusive and supportive.
If you are selected to participate in either or both opportunities, you will be compensated for your time.
Your participation in this survey is completely voluntary, and you can decline to answer any question you don’t want to answer. We believe that this survey poses no more than minimal risk—you will be asked about your experiences on campus and in class, which may bring up negative memories, and you will be asked for any suggestions about how to make SJSU more LGBTQ+ inclusive. If you have any questions or concerns about any aspect of this project or the research, please email Robert Marx via at firstname.lastname@example.org.
