University of Kansas
Senior Survey

The Senior Survey has been conducted six times since 1977, at 4- or 5-year intervals: 1977, 1982, 1987, 1992, 1996, and 2000. The original survey was developed as part of a project undertaken at the six Board of Regents institutions by the Council of Institutional Research Officers. The impetus for the survey was to obtain a baseline measure on the level of student satisfaction with the university experience with a deliberate timetable for reassessment.

2000 Survey Results
The Senior Survey was readministered for the sixth time in 2000. It is essentially unchanged since it's first administration in 1977, providing comparative information over a span of 23 years. It continues to tap student opinion on various academic and social facets of the university experience:

  • Academic Experiences
  • Progress Toward Academic Goals
  • Student Services
  • Programs, Facilities, and Resources
  • Level of Involvement in Campus Activities and Organizations
  • Post-graduation Outlook

In addition to satisfaction ratings in these areas, it is a rich source of anecdotal information about the quality of the student life at KU. Verbatim comments provide insight on both positive experiences, and suggestions for improving the quality of the student experience at KU.


The results of the Senior Survey have been prepared by the Office of Institutional Research and Planning (785-864-4412). Questions about the results may be directed to Carrie Towns.
