Student Regent Item: Journey to Degree and Beyond Survey

My name is Kaitlyn Zhou and I am the current student regent for the 2018-2019 school year. Each year, the student regent presents an item to the board of regents in the spring. This year, I have spent time exploring how undergraduate students across all three of our campuses would describe their educational experiences. In particular, I am hoping to better understand how their academic learnings and beyond classroom experiences prepare them for their future careers. I am curious to understand in which areas students feel most prepared and which areas students feeling they are lacking. I hope to use these findings to help us better understand areas where we succeed and areas where we can seek to make improvements.
I have conducted a series of interviews with students from all three campuses and have used these initial findings to help inform me of additional questions to ask through the form of a survey. I was wondering if it would be at all possible for you to share this survey within your department? The target audience of this survey is graduating seniors and recent alums. The deadline to complete this survey is April 23rd at 11:59 PM.
