Campus Climate Survey

Rutgers-Newark is conducting a campus climate assessment to measure the experiences of undergraduate students on our campus. The CIRP Diverse Learning Environments Survey is based on a nationally recognized instrument, created by the Higher Education Research Institute at University of California-Los Angeles (UCLA).

Students who wish to participate in this survey need only check their Rutgers email address, as all matriculated undergraduate students will receive email invitation from the research team with a unique web link to the survey. Students must click on this web link to access the survey.  If you have deleted the email, not to worry, reminder emails will be sent three times throughout the month of April that include the survey link!

Should you have any questions regarding this survey, please contact Maren Greathouse, the project’s director, at

Incentives for Participation in the Survey
Students who have participated in this survey will be eligible for one of many prizes:

Among the first 1,000 student respondents, one in two have a  chance of winning a $5 food voucher to use at the Paul Robeson Campus Center. Winners of these voucher will be notified via email on a weekly basis.  In addition to this, students may compare their survey code- provided as they exit the survey- with the winning survey codes below.

In addition to these prizes, all students who take the survey have a chance to win one of our grand prizes.  These include a  FREE SEMESTER OF BOOKS, an IPAD MINI, or BEATS by DR. DRE headphones. All grand prize winners will be notified in June 2013, once the study has closed.
