Information for Graduating Students
You have been selected to participate in a survey of graduating Naval Postgraduate School (NPS)
students. The purpose of this survey is to assess various aspects of academic life at NPS, including your
quality of life, the physical environment, support services, and policies and requirements set forth by
NPS. The results of the survey will be used by the NPS leadership to improve NPS. This is your
opportunity to provide NPS with frank feedback on what works well and what does not.
No tangible compensation will be given for participation in the survey. If you agree to participate, you
are free to withdraw at any time without prejudice. Upon completion of the research, a copy of the final
report will be available from Dr. Fran Horvath, Director of
Institutional Research. Your participation in this survey is voluntary, although your input is extremely
valuable for the improvement of NPS.
Please note that all survey records and data will be kept strictly confidential. Your participation in the
survey and your responses to the survey will not be disclosed outside of the research team. Survey
results will only be reported in the aggregate so that individual responses cannot be determined. Upon
completion of the survey, all records identifying your participation in the survey will be destroyed.
If you have any questions or comments regarding this survey, please contact Dr. Fran Horvath, Director
of Institutional Planning and Communications at 831-
-2228 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
