Accessing and Using SERU Data

SERU gives us the opportunity to better understand student experiences at both institutional and department levels. Academic departments receive summaries of responses for students in their majors, and UI faculty and staff are invited to access SERU data for department use and for their own scholarly work. For information about gaining access to the SERU dataset, contact
