Confidentiality, Data Analysis and Use

In the short term, responses to the MCA and facilitator surveys will help the training developers at UW- Madison make improvements to the research mentor training materials, our evaluation tools, and this website. We are happy to provide feedback to those involved in implementing mentor training (site leaders) to help them improve research mentor training at their home institutions.

All responses are confidential; all data will be collected and analyzed by UW-Madison staff. Results will be reported in aggregate with any identifying information removed, as required by our IRB. In the long term, these data will be added to a national data set that will allow us to look for patterns that link variations on implementation with mentoring outcomes, informing future mentorship development programs and training. If you have additional questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us at
