IPFW Market Research Study Survey

Vicky Carwein, July 20, 2017

Dear colleagues,

In the following days, you will receive an e-mail inviting you to take an online survey of Indiana University – Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) faculty and staff to explore your attitudes and opinions about the university.

This online survey is a component of a comprehensive market research study that will help ensure the university’s success far into the future. SimpsonScarborough, a higher education market research firm, was recently hired by the University to conduct this research, and your input is critical to the success of this study.

To ensure confidentiality, the responses will be submitted directly to SimpsonScarborough and will never be directly attributed to you.

Your input is highly valued, and I hope you will choose to participate in this important research project. If you have questions, please contact SimpsonScarborough Project Strategist Daniel Himmelfarb at

Best regards,

Vicky Carwein, Chancellor
