Alumni Preferred Form of Communication Survey



Every one of us have preferred methods in which we choose to communicate. Many times the generation we grew up in helps mold and shape our preferences in this area. Southwestern Christian University, like many organizations and other educational institutions has taken notice of this and is seeking to discover the preferred forms of communication across the different generations of alumni.

This survey is vitally important to SCU and is part of a research project that seeks to add to the body of knowledge on this subject. You have been selected as a participant because of your previous enrollment at SCU.

This survey will take less than 10 minutes to complete and can be accessed through the link at the bottom of this email. Completing the questionnaire requires that you rate how strongly you agree or disagree with each of the statements by placing a check mark in the appropriate box. Your completion of this survey implies your consent to participate in this study.

Participation in this survey is voluntary and you are free to discontinue participation at any time in the process. To protect your confidentiality and anonymity, the questionnaire does not record any identifiable information of participants. Information and data obtained will be used to improve how we communicate with various constituencies and also in fulfilling the requirements for a doctoral dissertation entitled, “Identifying alumni preferred forms of communication among four different generations,” of which Jon Chasteen (Class of 01), a doctoral candidate at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma is the primary researcher.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by email at or by phone at 405 789 7661 ext 3422. We greatly appreciate your participation.

Thank you, your participation is an invaluable contribution to our efforts at Southwestern Christian University.
