Dear former HGR participant:

I'm conducting a research project on the effectiveness of our Hit the Ground Running summer bridge program. As a former participant, you might have some ideas about how HGR has or perhaps has not been useful for you during your college career here at Missouri S&T. Would you consider giving us 10-15 minutes of your time by completing the survey about your time in HGR? Your responses will greatly assist us in assessing the effectiveness of HGR and in improving our summer course. Know that your participation in the survey is completely voluntary. Also at no time will your name appear anywhere on the survey results, so your responses will be strictly anonymous.

You can access the survey here.

Would you also be willing to be interviewed by me regarding your thoughts abouy HCR and its contribution to your college education? The interview should take about 15-20 minutes or less.

If you agree to an interview, please know that your responses will be held in the strictest confidence, and should I refer to you in the article I'll write about HGR, I will use a pseudonym instead of your name to protect your anonymity. I'll also ask you to sign a consent form, authorizing me to use your interview responses as long as I do not use your actual name. You will be provided a copy of any interview answers you provide that I include in my article about HGR, and you will have the right withdraw your consent to be included in the article at any time prior to the article's submission.

If you are willing to be interviewed about your HGR experience or have any questions, please reply to me at reardond@mst.edu. Thanks very much for your time, your willingness to participate in this HGR assessment project, and your contribution to HGR's success.
