Minority Serving Institutions: The Impact of COVID-19 as a Disability Concern
 
Dear Participants,
 
The College of Southern Nevada (CSN), a Minority Serving Institution, and a team of Higher Education Research consultants are studying the impacts of “Long COVID-19” (also referred to as Long COVID) and COVID-related Mental Health challenges on MSIs, as well as the offices that provide support services to students with disabilities. As a critical stakeholder serving this population you are invited to participate in this study. We welcome your insights and information.
 
The research title is “Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) Addressing the Needs of Students with Long COVID and COVID-related Mental Health Challenges as a Disability Concern.”
 
This is a multi-phase research project, with the initial phase being a precursor survey. As a representative of your college, our team is inviting you to be a part of this ground-breaking work. The information you provide will be invaluable, not only to MSIs but to the broader higher education community regarding the impact of Long COVID and COVID-related Mental Health challenges as an emerging disability concern on college campuses. You will be helping to build a body of data which will provide deeper insight on current studies about Long COVID and COVID-related Mental Health challenges.
 
This initial phase of information gathering will be conducted via SurveyMonkey. The second phase of the project will be a questionnaire based on responses received from this survey.
 
Should you accept our invitation, you will be asked to complete an electronic survey which has been approved by the College of Southern Nevada (CSN) Institutional Review Board (IRB) to ensure that all data will be confidential. No individual or institution data will be identifiable directly or indirectly. Your responses will be anonymous.
 
Your participation in this research is entirely voluntary and very much appreciated. If you agree with the conditions of confidentiality, please proceed to the survey.  The survey should take approximately 30 minutes to complete.

At any time, you can decide to withdraw from the study. Your feedback will be greatly appreciated by July 1st, 2022.
