The Bucknell Institute for Public Policy supports survey research, providing opportunities for faculty and student research and enhancing the classroom experience.
During summer 2016, the Institute piloted a survey about public attitudes and policy views, and a second survey was conducted during the summer of 2017 with a focus on public opinion on issues concerning higher education. Bucknell students work with faculty in analyzing the results of this survey and are writing questions for new surveys moving forward.
Will Bordash '18, one of the Survey Research interns, says "I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to work with both professors and fellow students on the Survey Research Initiative pilot. The Institute for Public Policy has given me a great experience by allowing students to take on responsibility that normally is not given to them in the classroom. It motivates me to continue to develop my public policy and data analytic skills as we work to find many interesting trends within the results from the survey."
