IUPUI Pulse Survey is a web survey of a random sample of IUPUI students conducted in each semester starting Spring 2009. The survey topics are decided by a committee on IUPUI campus. The IUPUI Office of Academic Planning and Evaluation funded the brief web survey which used a questionnaire developed by the IUPUI Pulse Committee and the IUPUI Multicultural Center working with the Director of the IUPUI Survey Research Center (SRC).
Improvements based on IUPUI Pulse Survey feedback:
- The Pulse Diversity Survey revealed a need for better communication about the Multicultural Success Center (MSC). The MSC now participates in regular meetings with University Student Government (USG) and Staff Council about MSC activities. They have also given presentations to Deans and invited classes to see their services.
- Results from the Pulse Campus Safety Survey revealed that students felt lighting was insufficient in multiple specific locations. Facilities Services inspected lighting on campus over the Thanksgiving holiday and repaired insufficient lights.
- With the Pulse Campus Recreation and Housing Survey, 86% of respondents indicated there was a need for a Health and Wellness Center on IUPUI's campus. Seventy-nine percent of respondents age 18-24 indicated they felt IUPUI needed additional housing and 71% would be at least somewhat likely to choose to live on campus if more housing were available. Results were shared in a presentation to the Board of Trustees advocating for funds to build a new Health and Wellness Center as well as additional housing on campus. USG and IUPUI administration continues to use this information when promoting the need for additional housing for students.
