Student Experience at a Research University

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 on the New Brunswick campus.

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 fifth year that Rutgers-New Brunswick has been invited to participate along with other research universities across the United States in the administration of SERU on their respective campuses. Rutgers-New Brunswick undergraduates will be joining undergraduates at institutions that include the Universities of Southern California, Michigan, Minnesota, Pittsburgh, Texas, Oregon, North Carolina, Virginia, and Iowa, plus Indiana, Texas A&M and Purdue Universities.

The SERU survey is available to Rutgers undergraduates April 5, 2013 via the following link:
