Student Experiences and Perceptions

Students who are actively involved in their own learning and development are more likely to be successful in college. Colleges and universities offer students a wide variety of opportunities both inside and outside the classroom to become engaged with new ideas, people, and experiences. Institutions measure the effectiveness of these opportunities in a variety of ways to better understand what types of activities and programs students find the most helpful.

Following are the selected results from the 2013 University of Michigan Asks You (UMAY) survey, which is conducted as a member of the Student Experience in the Research University (SERU) national consortium. The questions have been grouped 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.
