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.
