Dear Students,

I am pleased to inform you of an important opportunity you will be offered in the coming days to  participate in a survey of the institutionalization of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belongingness on our campus. Participation will entail completing a 15-minute web-based survey; your unique link to the  survey will be emailed to you from in the coming days.

This survey was designed to determine the state of your sense of belonging on our campus. Your views are especially important to us as we strive to increase the satisfaction of all students and to make NMC a great place to learn.
The survey is completely confidential and will be handled through the survey provider’s project team.

We welcome this opportunity to learn from an independent and research-driven study. We believe that NMC has the potential to be one of the best places for our students to thrive. However, data  from the DEII study will be meaningful only if we have broad participation.

Within a week, you will receive an email from, directing you to the online  survey. The survey is easy to complete. If you have any questions about this survey, please contact Dr. Marcus Bennett at or

Thank you in advance for helping us through participation in this study.  

Drs. Nick Nissley and Marcus Bennett
