Survey Background:

This survey represents an integral component of our ongoing efforts to understand and enhance the NISE Net partner experience, and as such, the participation of our partners is absolutely vital.  The questions included in the online survey were designed to assess the ways in which the resources available through the Network are put to use, as well as how the Network might better support partners' efforts.  If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Liz Rosino at
