I. Abstract

NASA needs information pertaining to experiences of program beneficiaries in programs and activities receiving NASA financial assistance, such as student experiences in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs, in order to more effectively conduct civil rights compliance reviews of programs receiving federal financial assistance from NASA. Such reviews are required by NASA regulations under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Age Discrimination Act of 1975, and Section 619 of the NASA Authorization Act of 2005 (requiring NASA to conduct at least two Title IX reviews annually of NASA grant recipient institutions).

II. Method of Collection

NASA will utilize several on-line survey tools that will allow students at institutions on which NASA is conducting Title IX compliance reviews to provide responses by e-mail.
