Dear Josiah,

We hope you are staying safe and well during this very unusual academic year. We are writing to request feedback about your experience as a master’s student at Brown. Feedback in previous surveys has helped inform the Graduate School’s initiatives related to advising and mentoring, professional development, and mental health resources.  These surveys offer an effective way to provide confidential feedback on your graduate program and experience.

This is a unique link assigned to you.  Please do not share this link or forward it to anyone else. The survey will close on March 27th.

This survey is administered by the Office of Institutional Research. Responses are completely confidential. Results will be shared with departments and the Graduate School only in the aggregate and without any data that could identify individuals. 

In appreciation, we will make a donation to the Rhode Island Community Food Bank for every master’s student who completes the survey, up to a total of $800 if we reach a 50% response rate.  Thank you for taking the time to participate. 


Katharine Tracy Barnes
