The following is a list of surveys that have been or are scheduled to be deployed and key information about each survey. Inclusion on this list does not indicate that the survey is conducted on behalf or with the approval of the Kenyon College administration, only that the researchers have shared the survey dates. Please make note of the sponsor/contact information in order to determine the origin of the survey.
