Call for Non-Traditional Student Study Participation

Call for Non-Traditional Student Study Participation – From Our Colleague at Mott Community College

I am a doctoral student who is conducting interviews with students who attend Washtenaw Community College and are age 27 or older. Your commitment would include an interview with the researcher to discuss your reasons for attending school at this time in your life. The interview should take no more than one hour of your time and will take place mid to late September.

Your participation in the research is completely voluntary. All information collected, used or disclosed will be for research purposes only and destroyed after the research is completed.

No one will attempt to sell you anything based on your participation.

If you are interested in participating please call to answer a few preliminary questions at 810-241-2323 or email me at

If interested please contact me as soon as possible because there are limited spaces for participants.

I look forward to hearing from you.
