A request - a Way to Help

You are invited to participate in a study that a class from IUSB is conducting for our Co-op – a way to learn more about why people shop at Purple Porch Co-op.  The course is a Qualitative Research Methods course taught by a IUSB Professor (and Co-op Member-owner) – Zach Shrank. 

This is an “opt-in” opportunity.  I will only provide your contact information to the course Dr. Shrank IF you give permission.  Participation only means that the Professor will contact you in order to set up a time to meet with a student for a brief interview about Purple Porch Co-op.  To do that – Please click on this mini form and submit within the week.

Your cooperation is good for this course and the information gathered will be good for your Co-op.

Thank you!
