  • n = 153 for all measures. Within each question, responses were “mark all that apply,” so percentages may add up to more than 100. χ2 and Fisher exact test comparisons of percentages are not significant unless noted as follows: a P ≤ .001; b P < .01; c P < .05. Differences pertain to all categories of the institutional characteristic.
