Please see below for a study that needs Hmong Students! Please spread the word!
We are excited to be launching a new research project entitled: Factors that Affect the Experiences and Success of Hmong American College Students in Higher Education. This project consists of a web-based questionnaire that is being distributed widely through listservs and social media such as Facebook and Twitter.
We need your help finding as many participants as possible in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and California! Please forward this email to students who might be interested in participating in this study.
The purpose of this study is to gather some preliminary data about factors that affect the experiences and success of Hmong college students. Right now, we are looking for currently enrolled students in higher education to complete a short web-based survey (about 15-20 minutes) about their identification as Hmong Americans and their college experiences. Participants must be between the ages of 18-23 years old, enrolled in a degree-seeking program at a four-year public institution of higher education in Wisconsin, Minnesota, or California.
The Human Subjects Institutional Review Board at Western Michigan University, the home institution of the primary and student investigators (Dr. Donna M. Talbot, Mr. Peter Xiong, and Mr. Jason Atherton) has approved this study. All three researchers identify with or consider themselves strong allies for the advancement of academic and personal success for the ethnic group identified in this study.
