UNC-Chapel Hill measures the quality of student experiences in a variety of ways to better understand what types of activities and programs students participate in and their perceptions of the campus climate. These assessments include student surveys, focus groups, interviews, course evaluations and longitudinal studies.
Institutions participating in the VSA program measure student involvement on campus using one of four national surveys. Results from the one survey are reported for a common set of questions selected as part of VSA. Following are the selected results from the University of California Undergraduate Experience Survey (UCUES). The questions have been grouped together in categories that are known to contribute to student learning and development. The results reported below are based on the responses of seniors who participated in the survey.
