Understanding Vaping at UNM: Survey

The UNM Campus Office of Substance Abuse Prevention (COSAP) is conducting a survey of UNM students (ages 18 – 27) to understand knowledge and decision making to vaping. You are receiving this email because you are a UNM student. If you agree to participate, this study will involve completing an online survey that will take about 5 - 10 minutes to finish. Participants may experience discomfort or loss of privacy when answering questions. Your input is important in helping UNM COSAP make data-driven approaches on this topic. No identifying information, such as name, email, or IP, will be collected. Participants will be able to enter a raffle to one of ten $25 Amazon gift cards by completing a voluntary form that will not link your survey responses to your raffle entry. Completing the survey is voluntary. We sincerely request your participation. Please go to to get started.
