As a result of the extensive discussions of recent weeks about the direction of the university, a team of UvA researchers will conduct a survey among all students and staff until Friday, 3 April. The intention is to take stock of the problems experienced by students and staff and how they wish these to be addressed.

The survey provides an overview of the priorities of the various groups within the university. It also addresses the differences and similarities within and between groups of students and staff. 

On Monday, 30 March, the Central Student Council (CSR) and Central Works Council sent you an email inviting you to take part in the survey. Select the link in the email and complete the questionnaire. If you do not wish to take part, you are nonetheless requested to fill in a no-response question via the second link in the invite. It takes no more than five minutes to fill in the survey, which will close at midnight on Friday, 3 April.

Accountability research and results

The research survey was created and is conducted by a team of UvA academics (survey and policy researchers) with an independent mandate. The survey is widely supported by the Central Works Council (COR), Central Student Council (CSR), the ASVA student union, the Executive Board (CvB), De Nieuwe Universiteit and ReThink UvA.

The results of the survey will be made available to the public as soon as possible in the form of a research report via various websites including those of the Central Works Council and Central Student Council. Your participation will not be made known to others – the questions cannot be traced back to individuals.

The research team comprises the following staff members: Tom van der Meer (associate professor, Political Science), Thijs Bol (lecturer, Sociology), Christian Bröer (professor, Sociology), Linda Duits (lecturer, Political Science), Karen Schiffner (support staff, Graduate School of Social Sciences).
