Families in Residence study

For the purpose of this study, a Faculty-in-Residence is defined as a college or university instructor who lives in university-owned housing and has student-facing responsibilities related to the residential area where they live. The purpose of the project is to better understand the support structures for FIR and their partners and families, as well as the challenges they face and the benefits they bring.

As a FIR, you will be asked to answer several multiple choice and short answer questions related to your experiences living on a college campus. Your participation will take approximately 20 minutes. Upon completion of the survey, you will be invited to enter a raffle to win a $50 Target gift card for your participation.
