The University is participating in the Student Experience in the Research University (SERU) Survey project, which is a collaborative effort among various (mostly public) AAU institutions. Developed by the University of California at Berkeley, the purpose of the SERU project is: to develop “new data sources and policy relevant analysis to help broaden our understanding of the undergraduate experience and to promote a culture of institutional self-improvement” at large, public research universities. A major advantage of participating in the SERU project is the ability to compare responses of Carolina students with those of their counterparts at other research universities at the program level
The University administered the SERU survey in 2011, 2013, and 2015. Results from the surveys are available below.
