"Belonging" Study -- Participant Recruitment

Participants needed for paid Study on Student sense of “Belonging” at College

Thank you for your interest in our study! We are looking for volunteers to participate in a research study on perceptions of belonging among students at 2- and 4-year colleges.

Participants will be asked to participate in one 60-minute video interview, conducted by a member of the Harvard research team. The interview will include questions on participant experiences as a student, as well as academic, extracurricular, and social activities, and sense of belonging in these different contexts. For more details on the study, you may review this document.

Participants are not required to provide any information they’re uncomfortable sharing during the interview. Each participant will receive a $40 Amazon e-gift card following the completion of the interview.

To be eligible, you must be a currently enrolled undergraduate student at Harvard University, UMass Boston, or Bunker Hill Community College.
