Where Are They Now?
Do you ever wonder what your fellow teammates and competitors are doing post-NOSB? So do we! And we’d like to know. We are asking all NOSB alumni to participate in an alumni tracking study to help us follow your activities post NOSB. We want to know how all of you student-wonders make decisions regarding your futures. Our part in this mission is to increase awareness of science, particularly ocean science and associated careers, and then learn whether our efforts are making a difference by gathering information about the college and future career selections of past and present NOSB participants.
Please help us by participating in this alumni tracking study. NOAA has graciously funded this alumni study in order to help us follow our NOSB alumni and participants. Register HERE to become part of NOSB history!
How it works: If you register, you will be asked for a current email address. You will then be contacted by the researchers directing the study, Dr. Kristina Bishop with The College of Exploration and Dr. Howard Walters with Ashland University. Participants can expect to be sent a series of brief surveys to complete online twice each year to monitor their college and career activities over the next several years. You will be given special access through an NOSB alumni web page to complete on-line surveys, participate in online discussions and receive the Ocean Leadership Weekly newsletter to keep you abreast of the most current issues occurring in the ocean science community. Your participation will be extremely important in obtaining required data necessary to establish future funding and ensure sustainability of the NOSB program.
