Dear UVic Instructors and Students,
My name is Megan Graham and I am a undergraduate university student working under the supervision of Dr. David Medler, completing an independent research project in the Psychology Department at the University of Victoria.
As an academic member of the University of Victoria (whether as an undergraduate student, graduate student, or faculty member), your participation is being sought in a study aimed to investigate the attitudes and belief structures that underlie adherence/non-adherence to COVID-19 public health and safety guidelines. Though much research has been conducted regarding trust-in-science among the general public, your contribution will represent such attitudes among those who are assumed to have more formal academic and/or scientific training, and thus may help to inform whether attitudes towards COVID-19 guidelines are moderated by academic background.
Participation in this study would take approximately half an hour (30 minutes) of your time. I would like to assure you that this study has been reviewed and received ethics clearance through the University of Victoria’s Human Research Ethics Board.
If you would like to participate in this study, please click the following link to be taken to the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.ca/r/covid-attitudes
We thank you for taking the time to contribute to this research and genuinely appreciate your participation.
