This year, NERCHE is partnering with the Center for Engaged Democracy (CED) at Merrimack College to use the Colloquium on September 15 to help articulate and advance a research agenda for the field. Please complete the short survey below (and share with colleagues) by September 5, 2014. Your individual contributions will be aggregated and used to frame the content of the Colloquium by helping to identify 5 (or more) research priorities for the coming academic year. The five areas identified below are compiled from a survey of recent Lynton Award recipients – these are their responses. We want to hear from you. Your responses will kept anonymous.

At the Colloquium, we will present the results of our survey by highlighting the top reoccurring research priority areas. Participants will further prioritize these research areas and form research working groups to carry out the research in 2014-2015, the results of which will be presented at the 2015 Lynton Colloquium.

We appreciate your contributions and look forward to our work together.

Best wishes,
The Lynton Colloquium Planning Team
Elaine Ward, Renee Hopkins, John Saltmarsh, Dan Butin, Luciano Ramos, Kathleen Banfiled and Lauren Anderson
