We’re now in the last portion of the survey data collection phase for the study, which will continue until Feb 14.
As before, I’m personally sending an email to the Chief Human Resource Officer of every four year public and private non-profit college and university in the 50 states and DC, inviting them to participate in the study and to benefit from participating by receiving our research results in advance of their publication. The surveys will be sent on a rolling basis over the next 10 days.
The updated survey takes less than 8 minutes to complete. All invitations to participate in the survey are sent from my email: email@example.com. The survey is hosted on Qualtrics (qualtrics.com), and invitees are provided a secure link to the survey.
Based on participants’ survey responses, institutions with living wage policies are asked to submit their institution’s policy (if you wish, we’ll redact all identifications of your institution), while institutions with living wage practices are asked to be interviewed (about 30 minutes) about their practices. For either branch of the study, institutions will not be identified in our research results and reports.
If you are a CHRO and haven’t received an invitation to participate in the survey, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you aren’t a CHRO, please encourage your CHRO to look for the survey and complete it. Living wage policies and practices are an increasingly important subject that higher education institutions will likely need to address, either sooner or later – but we can’t learn about HR practices in higher education without your help!
