This email is being sent on behalf Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) in regards to a survey we would like to conduct focusing on the lab research experiences of advisors and deaf or hard of hearing students. We are interested in any individual with limited or no signing ability who has advised a deaf or hard of hearing student in the last 3 years. If you fit these criteria and are willing to take part in this study, please respond to this post (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your preferred email address as well as the name and email address of the deaf or hard of hearing advisee with whom you worked. The survey will be sent by Dr. Austin Gehret from the National Technical Institute for the Deaf at RIT and you can expect to receive it by end of February, 2018. If you do not wish to participate, no response is needed.
The survey has been approved by RIT’s IRB office and is completely voluntary. If you have any questions about the survey, please feel free to contact me.
Thank you for your consideration.
