Student Experience in the Research University (SERU) Survey

The Rutgers University Student Experience in the Research University (SERU) survey is an online survey administered to all enrolled Rutgers undergraduates.

The SERU survey will launch on March 21, 2016

The SERU survey was developed for the University of California System by the UC Berkeley Center for Studies in Higher Education to broaden understanding of the undergraduate experience on the UC campuses and facilitate improvements on campus. The survey was tailored to research universities and has been administered regularly since 2004 to students on the UC campuses. This is the seventh year that Rutgers University has been invited to participate along with other research universities across the United States in the administration of SERU on their respective campuses. Rutgers University undergraduates will be joining undergraduates at institutions that include the Universities of California, Kansas, Iowa, Oregon, Pittsburgh, Texas, Southern California, Virginia, Washington, and Purdue University.
