Initial Steps and Timeline

  1. Contact Pete Cichetti ( or 518-782-6997) to express your interest, discuss the specifics of the survey, and obtain the necessary materials to move forward.

  2. Consider a launch date – The NASCE can be launched on any Monday of your choosing, in either the Fall or Spring semesters of a given academic year. Typically we ask that institutions choose a date at least 30 days in advance. The survey always launches on a Monday, fields for 12 days, and closes that following Friday.

  3. Once you’ve chosen a launch date, SRI will ask you to complete a Customization and Incentive form, which we will use to design and customize your institution’s unique survey. We ask to receive this form at least 2 or 3 weeks prior to the launch of the survey.

  4. Finally, we request that participating institutions provide us with a list of all undergraduate email addresses, solely for the purpose of distributing the survey.  We ask that these be provided at least one week prior to the survey launch date. 

  5. Once the survey is launched, SRI will send 4 email invitations to all undergraduate students over the course of 12 days, asking students to participate in the NASCE (the link to the survey is provided in the emails).  After the first email, subsequent emails are only sent to non-respondents.

  6. While the survey is fielding SRI will provide participating institutions with daily updates of how many students have completed the survey, so that you can gauge your response rate and assess your promotional efforts (and adapt them if needed).
