Dear Pittsburg State University International Alumni,

I am studying the factors that impact the engagement of international alumni with their alma mater. Examining the traits, beliefs and attitudes of international alumni will help to further develop understandings about how alumni relations professionals can better serve and engage this important group of constituents. By filling out the following questionnaire, an understanding of the essence of international alumni needs and desires will be developed through careful collection of participants' perceptions.

All data collected will be labeled by an assigned number only and at no time will it be linked to your identity. At the end of the questionnaire, you will be asked if you would be willing to participate in a video-conference interview in order to collect more detail regarding your relationship with Pittsburg State University since you graduated. If you are interested in participating in this, you may click the link to take you to a separate page where you may enter your contact information. This will ensure that your identity is kept separate from your questionnaire responses.

Results of this study will inform the future direction and plans of the Office of Alumni and Constituent Relations at Pittsburg State University. I also believe that the results will be generally applicable to other alumni relations offices at similar colleges and universities.

Risks for potential loss of anonymity are minimal. Participation in this study will not benefit you directly, but it will allow the Office of Alumni and Constituent Relations at Pittsburg State University to understand the ways to keep international alumni engaged with the university and ultimately, better serve them. Participation is voluntary. You may decide not to participate in this study and if you begin participation, you may still decide to stop and withdraw at any time.

If you agree to participate in this research, please click on the link below to complete the questionnaire.

If you have any concerns about your selection or treatment as a research participant, please contact Jon Bartlow at 620-235-4761. If you have questions about your rights as a research participant, you can call the Saint Louis University Institutional Review Board at 314-977-7744 and reference IRB #29906.
