Transportation Equity Education – Study Invitation

We are reaching out to request your participation in a brief survey regarding Transportation Equity Education in urban planning and engineering programs across the U.S. The goal of the survey is to understand and document notable practices of curriculum development and interdisciplinary training related to transportation equity in engineering and planning schools/programs across the U.S. The research is sponsored by the USDOT through the STRIDE University Transportation Center and emphasizes promoting transportation equity through curriculum interventions. The aim of this project is to use the existing body of knowledge (including toolkits and measures centering on transportation equity) to develop educational materials for transportation engineering and planning graduate programs across the U.S.  

 The research team will use Qualtrics to conduct the survey. There are no risks or discomforts anticipated and all of your answers will remain confidential. The survey will take 3 to 5 minutes to complete and your participation is voluntary. You are free to withdraw your consent and to stop participating in this study at any time.
