Town-Gown survey to gauge connections, concerns

Campus beauty shot of fall leaves.A city of Oxford and Miami University Town and Gown Initiatives Team (TGIT) is conducting a baseline survey of people in Oxford and at Miami. Organizers hope the data gathered can help the city Miami build an even more productive relationship.

The survey is a widely-used instrument that helps measure campus and community perceptions of each other. It also includes questions related to the impact of student alcohol and drug use on town-gown relations, an issue of great significance in a city in which off-campus students outnumber full-time permanent residents. The survey takes 8-10 minutes to complete.

The Oxford-Miami TGIT was invited to participate in The Ohio College Initiative Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Pilot Project in a competitive statewide process. A significant component of this initiative involves surveying Miami students, faculty and staff and Oxford stakeholders (residents, educators, police, businesses, government, the faith community, etc.).
