How do I find my survey link?

On April 8, you’ll receive a launch email from Chancellor Andrew Martin and then up to four reminder emails throughout the spring term from your school’s dean. Any of these emails has your unique survey link. Here are helpful search terms to locate one of those emails: “Senior Survey”,,, “Chancellor Andrew Martin”, Jennifer Smith, your school’s dean: A&S “Erin McGlothlin”; Business “Paige LaRose”; Engineering “Chris Kroeger”; Sam Fox “Georgia Binnington.”

Can I share my survey link?

Nope! You have a unique survey link. If friends are looking for the email with their survey link, send them to this page or have them email Just don’t forward them your email with your link.

Can I return to the survey after I’ve started it?

Yes! If you’ve only got a few minutes in between classes, you can answer a few questions and then exit the survey. When you click on your link again, you can pick up where you left off. 

Can I take the survey on my phone?

Absolutely! The Senior Survey is formatted to be easy to take on a computer, a tablet or on a smartphone.

How long is the survey?

The Senior Survey takes about 20 minutes to complete. We know that this is a longer survey, but it’s worth it! The University needs to hear your voice. 

Will my answers be kept confidential?

Absolutely. Your responses will be kept completely confidential. Analyses of the data will not be reported in any form that would identify an individual. Note that any written comments you choose to provide will be shared exactly as they are written to a small number of leaders across the university; your name will not be included unless you choose to write it into your response.

Do I have to take the survey?

No, this survey is completely voluntary. But this is the core survey that Washington University’s administration uses to figure out what we’re doing well and what needs to be improved.  We hope you’ll consider this worthwhile, and answer as much as you are willing to answer.

Do you have the full Senior Survey instrument available?
