We administered SERU to all degree-seeking undergraduates during Spring 2018. Nearly 20% of students responded, and the profile of respondents was broadly representative of the undergraduate population in terms of academic characteristics, college, race/ethnicity, and year of study.
These Briefs provide quick snapshots of student responses on just a few topics covered by SERU:
- How Students Report Using Their Time
Most students reports spending most of their time on ...
- Student Satisfaction and Interaction with Faculty
What students say about the quality, access, and extent of their interactions with faculty
- Student Employment and Financial Concerns
Average hours of student employment per week, and some of the effects of employment on student experiences
- Putting Knowledge to Use
How students report using what they are learning, both in and across classes
- Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Iowa
2018 SERU surveys provided data to support the development of the campus DEI Action Plan
These Briefs offer responses to just a few SERU questions. Other sections of SERU address a wide range of topics, including:
- satisfaction with academic and social experiences
- perceptions of majors
- perceptions of their own learning and development
- community involvement
- future plans
- reported obstacles to success
- reflections on their most meaningful learning experience at UI
