The 2013 SERU Survey
(Student Experience in the Research University)
IAS can provide direct support (question writing, web programming, administration and analysis) for a limited number of surveys from University offices and departments. Please contact IAS for more information or to request survey support.
The 2015 SERU (Student Experience in the Research University) Survey results are here.
The University of Virginia seeks information on student life in a variety of areas, including academic engagement, students’ majors, global skills and awareness, community and civic engagement, and student development. By regularly monitoring such information, University administrators and faculty can identify strengths and weaknesses in the academic and student support programs and, with that knowledge, can work to improve programs and services. One particularly good way to gather such information is through voluntary, confidential surveys of current students. For this reason, the University participates in the Student Experience in the Research University (SERU) survey. Approximately 4,000 undergraduate students completed the SERU survey last spring. This spring, all undergraduates—all 14,641—will be invited to participate in the survey by email; they can access the survey through a link in that email. Follow up reminders will be sent in the following weeks to those who haven’t responded.
