How can we address your research and data needs?
Understand the impact of the SMU student experience
Student Affairs Administration oversees myriad research initiatives that collectively inform the institution's understanding of the SMU student experience with respect to key inputs, environments, and outcomes. To do this, Student Affairs Administration acts as the primary coordinating office for a number of large-scale institutional surveys administered to SMU students. Our office also engages in more targeted qualitative and quantitative projects to support the work of Student Affairs and our campus partners. The results, findings, and implications from these efforts are communicated to SMU students, staff, faculty, and other stakeholders in order to ultimately drive institutional improvement.
