Survey Time

Hi everyone,

We invite you to participate in the 2011-2012 National Biotechnology/Life Sciences Program Survey. Federal and state agencies will use the results to determine how best to support programs like yours. This study will also help prospective students and industry employers find your program.  Survey results will be available to you to help with program planning, grant activities, and more.

Your participation is crucial to ensuring that the results accurately represent this important industry. Whether or not your college currently offers a biotechnology/life sciences program, your input is essential. The survey includes programs that are in the planning stages, as well as ways that colleges incorporate these subjects into other courses.

The survey asks about:

  • Program characteristics,
  • Student demographics, and
  • Degrees and certificates awarded.

If you are not the right person to complete the survey, please forward this request to your college’s biotechnology/life sciences program administrator. The survey should take 15 minutes or less to complete.

To request a paper version of the survey or to complete the survey via telephone, please contact Candiya Mann, Project Director, at or (360) 373-0468.

Thank you for your time!
