Sociological Effects of Student Exchange Programs

Dear Participants,

My name is Abhinita Premkumar, and I am a World Language Capstone student at Jenks High School. I am conducting a study to determine whether there is an association between student-exchange programs and enhanced trust in their community.

It is my hope that data from this survey will contribute to further understanding about the role that student-exchange programs play in participants’ perceptions of foreigners as well as their family/friends.

Your responses to this survey will be anonymous. No identifiable information will be collected and nobody, including me, will know who you are based on your responses. The data may be used in a research paper and presentation, but it will not be published.

Your participation is completely voluntary and you may choose not to participate in this study. There is no reward for participating and no consequence for not participating. Any risks associated with participation are no greater than those of daily living.

Your responses to this survey will be anonymous. The data from this survey may be used in a research paper/presentation, but no identifiable information will be released. Address any questions or concerns to abhinita2002@gmail.com. You will be contacted again after data collection so you will have the chance to learn of the results of the study.

I certify that I have read and understood the parameters of this research and that my participation in this survey is completely voluntary. By responding to this survey, I agree to participate in the study about the sociological effects of exchange programs on the student.
