Study Details

Social Safety on University of Utah Campus

(IRB#: IRB_00169088)

This study will help researchers understand how different campus settings feel to first-year students from different backgrounds and life paths. An app has been developed for students to use on a smartphone. The app will collect student experiences across different campus settings such as coffee shops, study areas, and classrooms. Students can choose to make lots or ratings, or only a few, and those who commit to making 15 different ratings will receive a $50 amazon gift card at the end of the study.
