iCubed Internal Advisory Board

The iCubed study benefits from the support of an Internal Advisory Board (IAB), which is comprised of  UMBC’s academic and program leaders.  The group meets twice each year to provide program guidance, formative evaluations, and future intervention integration.

Attention iCubed Participants from the 2011-2012 Academic Year:

We would like all 2011-2012 iCubed participants to complete a survey regarding their freshmen year. Individual messages were sent out from Provost Philip Rous asking students to participate in the survey, which should require less than 15 minutes to complete. Participation in this survey is voluntary. Four prize drawings will be held in conjunction with the winner of the first drawing, which will be held on June 18, receiving a $100 UMBC bookstore gift card. The winners of each of the remaining three drawings, which will be on held July 1, August 1 and September 1, will receive a $25 UMBC bookstore gift card. Each drawing will be open to all students who have completed the survey prior to noon on the day of the drawing. Thus, if students who complete this survey by June 17 at midnight, will be entered into all four prize drawings. Questions? Contact:
