have been selected to participate in a survey on the role of mentoring
as a service for the anthropology profession.
The National Association for the Practice of
Anthropology (NAPA) and the American Anthropological Association (AAA) have
three objectives for this survey:
Assess awareness of the program,
Document perceptions of, and satisfaction with the program, and
Evaluate the usage of mentoring for careers in practice.
The research findings will be employed to inform decisions about
creating or refining mentor offerings where needs are identified. Your decision whether to fill out this
survey or decline will involve no penalty or loss of rights or benefits and you
may discontinue at any time. Filling out
the survey should take between 15 - 20 minutes. Confidentiality is very
important to us. Please do not put any identifying information on the
survey. Once we receive the survey we
will assign it a randomized number. There are no foreseeable risks involved in
this study. Nor will you directly benefit.
However the information you provide may help the National Association
for the Practice of Anthropology and American Anthropology Association and as
they plan for the future.
research study has been reviewed and approved by the University of North Texas
(UNT) Institutional Review Board (IRB).
