- Association of Public Land Grant University Institutional Assessment on Innovation
and Economic Prosperity:Due Friday, February 28
After a discussion with staff in the Office of the Vice President for Research, we
would like to encourage all STEM-CORE Network members to complete this survey. If
you began the survey previously and found yourself answering questions which did not
seem to apply to you, please consider returning to the beginning of the survey and
answering “No” to the question, “While at Texas Tech University, have you ever participated
in community development, engagement, or community impact projects?” This will direct
you to a condensed version of the survey with questions only addressing the amount
of importance you place on various issues.
