Miami University and the City of Oxford were recently selected (through a competitive statewide process) to participate in the Ohio College Initiative Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Pilot Project. A significant component of this initiative involves surveying Miami students, faculty and staff, and major Oxford stakeholders (including property managers/landlords!).
The survey - called the Optimal Town Gown Assessment - is a widely-used instrument that helps measure campus and community perceptions of each other.
The Oxford-Miami Town Gown Initiatives Team (TGIT), a group that includes the Oxford Mayor and Miami's Dean of Students, will be launching this survey in early October 2017. We believe that input received will help our ongoing efforts to identify and promote mutually beneficial town-gown partnerships.
The survey received exempt status from Miami's Institutional Review Board (certification number 02587e). We would be happy to answer any questions you might have about the survey or this pilot.
OUR REQUEST: Please consider taking 5-7 minutes to take the survey online in early October when you receive the email invitation. We greatly appreciate your help in encouraging a robust and meaningful response to the survey.
