Program Evaluation

LATTICE attendees will be asked to share information from their application, complete a short feedback survey at the LATTICE symposium, and take annual web-based surveys in order to assess the outcomes and impact of LATTICE. Additionally, all LATTICE program applicants will be invited to complete two follow-up brief surveys about their career progression, two years and four years from now. Participation in the evaluative research is voluntary. You are not obligated to participate, and your decision not to participate will not preclude you from being selected as a participant in the symposium. All data will remain confidential in evaluation reports.
