Provide a brief description of the purpose and goals of this project.

Cornell in Washington is a semester long academic and internship program based in Washington, DC. We have been experiencing a significant drop in enrollment over the past few years and would like to better understand student awareness of the program, any misperceptions they may have and any factors that may hinder their participation.

Describe the population of interest (e.g. first year students, graduate students), sample size, and your method for selecting the sample.

We are seeking a representative sample of the undergraduate student body as a whole and in various majors. Given the vast variation in the size of undergrad majors, the desire to identify patterns across majors (or groups of similar majors) and the desire to avoid the use of statistical weights, we are seeking a simple, random, 33% sample of the undergraduate body. The survey will be anonymous.
