Segregation and Integration at Wesleyan

So I’ve been wanting to do this for a while and have finally gotten the chance to do it. These past 4 years at Wes, I’ve heard a lot about diversity and how segregated or integrated we are. Everyone seems to have an opinion and people disagree all the time, but it is difficult to get a sense of how Wesleyan students in general feel about these issues and whether one side of the debate is simply more vocal than the other side.

To try to get a sense of students’ perceptions, I have created a survey titled “Segregation and Integration at Wesleyan University.” It is part of a final project for my psych class, but I also intend it to be part of my contribution as a Wesleying blogger. I have committed myself to discussing the results of the survey in a Wesleying post in the coming weeks, which I think will be a good opportunity for people to discuss these issues in an open forum.

Here is the survey link: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SegregationIntegrationWesleyan

Please take the survey! It takes 5-10 minutes to complete. Whether you care about segregation and integration or not, it is important for your perspective to be reflected in the survey results.

Thanks!

    the results can’t be “skewed.” if someone thinks that something is segregated, then they think that! what’s so skewed about that?

    Thank you, but I am well aware of the limitations of an online survey. I just don’t think that should stop me from trying.

    @#5- Do you have any more info about that thesis?

    PS- My friends who know I’m doing this survey have already taken it as testers.

    I think there was a soc thesis about this last year that you might want to read.

    agreed, #3; this survey is just going to consist of everyone who has a bone to pick on this subject, as well as ashley castro’s friends, but few others.
    enjoy skewed results!

    It says 1-7 on the survey, should say 1-5. Not a big deal, just pointing it out.
