Bucknell University launched its MyVoice Student Experience Survey in November 2016. In doing so, we sought to identify the primary challenges and opportunities in our students' out-of-classroom experiences, and to generate data that we can use to drive effective change.
To ensure objectivity in the survey tool and results, Bucknell partnered with Royall & Company, a consulting firm that specializes in higher education. Royall oversaw the creation of the survey instrument, issued the survey, and gathered and analyzed the results. At the University's direction, Royall ensured that students were heavily involved in building the survey tool; the consultants led focus groups and individual meetings with 230 students. The survey received an impressive response rate, with 2,101 students — 60 percent of our student body — participating.
The survey included more than 40 open- and closed-ended questions, giving students ample opportunity to provide feedback in the areas of satisfaction; community; well-being; safety & security; dining & housing; and study abroad. Below are summaries of both the quantitative and qualitative results, broken down by those broad areas.
The Dean of Students' office will soon form student working groups focused on the challenges and opportunities identified by the survey. If you are interested in participating in one or more of these student groups, please fill out this brief form.
