The UI Senior Exit Survey is administered to all UI undergraduates at the time they file to graduate. This brief survey asks students about their experiences at UI, their participation in selected learning opportunities, and faculty or staff who made a difference for them during their time at UI.
We ask students to identify faculty or staff who made a positive difference in their lives during their time as undergraduates. Faculty and staff identified by students are acknowledged in the Daily Iowan near the end of Spring semester each year: 2019 | 2018 | 2017 | 2016 | 2015 | 2014
