Thank you to the EMU community and everyone who participated in the survey. Our response rates outperformed many of our peer institutions by double digits! The overall participation was heartwarming and shows how important this initiative is for EMU.
We will be presenting preliminary results and discussing patterns during the MLK academic program sessions on Jan. 20, 2020. We will also be presenting the full report and holding a Town Hall at the end of February. We will announce more communication plans as they are finalized.
The survey is now closed.
The survey is still open. If you received an email invitation to participate in survey, we urge you to fill out and submit the survey. Your voice is important, and we need your insight.
The EMU Voices project is still underway. Recording times are from 2-4 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays through Nov. 8. Go to the WEMU Studio in King Hall (5th floor) if you'd like to participate.
Also, focus groups are available for anyone who did not receive the survey but would still like to participate. Email Dibya Choudhuri at [email protected] to express your interest and find a time.
The survey will officially deploy on Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2019.
The EMU community is also invited to participate by recording a short story or experience about diversity at EMU. This initiative is called EMU Voices. The stories will be recorded in the WEMU studio in King Hall. Participation involves using the soundproof studio to record a story of about 3 to 5 minutes. Your story will only be audio recorded, and all identifying documentation will be removed. Recording times are from 2-4 p.m. on each of the following days: Oct. 22, Oct. 24, Oct. 28, Oct. 29, Oct. 31, Nov. 4 and Nov. 5.
Also, a traveling booth will soon be available in the Student Center, Halle Library and McKenny Hall. More information will be posted when it's available.
