Spring 2012

Over 500 current Brandeis seniors took the Wabash Study during their freshman year and now the last stage of this assessment is upon us: to have those same students take the surveys once more, now at the end of their undergraduate experience.  The more seniors who participate, the better, deeper and more nuanced the understanding will be of what a Brandeis undergraduate experience does for students.  The Wabash Study will give Brandeis more information on comprehensive student experiences than we have ever gotten in the history of the school.

This study will help us better understand what our school does well and what we could improve upon. This information will be invaluable for encouraging enrollment of new students, as the University will have raw data that lays out what life is really like at Brandeis.  Perhaps even more important, this data has the power to inform policy in areas that Brandeis as a community deeply wants to address. And the timing could not be more beneficial: the university is currently engaged in a massive Strategic Planning process in which the Wabash Study outcomes could play a highly influential role in terms of informing the Brandeis plan that will be in place for years to come.

And you, the students, get to drive that policy making simply by answering a few questions about your time here at Brandeis.
