What will Lawrence do with the results?
The results will guide future endeavors to improve the Lawrence Community. Survey findings will provide current campus attitudes and beliefs which will shape any university changes to improve the Lawrence community..

How long will the survey take?
The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete.
