Trust and Values Survey

You are invited to participate in the data collection for a doctoral research project: Trust in the Museum – aligning the organisation’s values internally and externally.

This research is being conducted by Victoria Hollows, PhD candidate at the University of Leicester and is in compliance with the research ethics guidelines of the University of Leicester. 

The purpose of this survey is two-fold: to identify how staff in organisations actively thinking about community engagement hold a range of values and whether this varies across the organisation; and to seek possible connections with how trust is perceived. 

Your responses will be confidential and no identifying information such as your name, email address or IP address will be collected. All data will be stored securely on encrypted media in full compliance with the Data Protection Act (1998) and the University’s Information Security Policy. The results of this study will be used for scholarly purposes only. Data analysis will focus on cross-organisation comparison. It will not highlight individual responses.

If you decide to participate in this survey, you may withdraw at any time during the survey and your response will not be included. After the survey is completed it will not be possible to identify a person’s data for withdrawal.

Completing the survey should take no more than 10 minutes.

If you have any questions about the research study, please contact Victoria Hollows. If you have any questions about the ethical conduct of the survey please contact Dr. Giasemi Vavoula at the School of Museum Studies, University of Leicester, 19 University Road, Leicester, LE1 7RF, 0116 252 3965.
