NFB Science & Engineering Division Survey of STEM Student Experiences in Higher Education
Introduction and Informed Consent

If you are or have been a student in a STEM major in higher education, the Science & Engineering Division of the NFB would like to hear from you!

We have designed a survey to help you tell the Science & Engineering Division of the National Federation of the Blind about your experiences as a STEM student in a college or university. We will use this information to help other students choose the best schools for their studies, and to help colleges and universities improve their support for students who are blind or low vision.

Participation is voluntary. The survey will take approximately 30 minutes or less to complete. You must be at least 18 years old to take this survey.

This study involves no foreseeable serious risks. We ask that you try to answer all questions. However, if there are any items that make you uncomfortable or that do not apply to you personally, please leave the answer blank.

Your responses are anonymous. If you are willing to participate in an interview about your experiences as a STEM student in higher education you can add your E-mail address in the last question of this survey. Providing your name and E-mail address will not make your specific answers to other questions identifiable.

If you have any questions or concerns about this survey or the research, please contact:
