Welcome to Research Central sponsored by the GSA. The object of these pages include:
- providing a location for our members to post survey links and recruit participants for their research,
- sharing of information on research (funding, resources, etc.),
For this site to work, it is a two way street—do not expect to get respondents if you do not respond to other members’ requests.
We encourage you to become familiar with this page and to continue to participate after you graduate.
