Undergraduate Surveys

UMAY Survey
The UMAY (University of Michigan Asks You) survey is part of the Student Experience in the Research University (SERU) project, a consortium of top-ranked and progressive research universities committed to broadening our understanding of the undergraduate experience. The project aims to create new data sources, conduct policy-relevant analyses, and promote a culture of institutional self-improvement.

National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE)
The National Survey of Student Engagement is designed to assess the extent to which freshmen and seniors engage in activities that are judged to be educationally effective. The survey also probes their perception of institutional priorities, and the extent to which they believe their learning and skills have been effected by the institution they attend. The survey is administered on many campuses across the United States each year. The University of Michigan was one of the inaugural institutions to participate in this survey project in 1999, and has administered the survey at three-year intervals since 2000.

Senior Survey: The Michigan Experience
In 2008, OBP conducted a survey of graduating seniors from U-M. The results of this survey are summarized in the following document.
