HERI Diverse Learning Environments Survey

This survey collects information about the experiences of undergraduate students in their sophomore and junior year from institutions across the nation. In this survey, respondents are asked to share their perceptions about UW-Whitewater related to academic work, interactions with faculty and peers, participation in campus activities, perceptions of the climate on campus, and use of campus services.

Participation in this survey is completely voluntary. All responses to the survey will be kept confidential and the data collected will be reported in the aggregate. For specific information about how participants will be treated, what they can expect should they choose to participate, and their rights to withdraw from the survey, please read the HERI DLE Survey Information Sheet.

The 2018 Diverse Learning Environments Survey opens on February 12, 2018 and closes on March 12, 2018. Undergraduate students who had achieved sophomore and junior standing by the beginning of the Fall 2017 semester will be invited to participate in the survey.

The Diverse Learning Environments Survey is being conducted by UW-Whitewater and the Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) at UCLA. HERI is a national organization that has conducted research on the undergraduate experience since 1989.

HERI reports the results of the survey in its own publications, as well as in other venues, such as The Chronicle of Higher Education. The findings from this survey will be used at UW-Whitewater to understand and improve the undergraduate experience at our institution.

If you have any questions about UW-Whitewater's participation in this survey, please contact the Office of Institutional Research and Planning at 262-472-5671 or irp@uww.edu.
