Real College Survey

Pitt’s Campus Basic Needs Committee is calling for all students to help out by taking the Real College survey by Oct 30th for a chance to win $100!

Pitt’s Campus Basic Needs Committee is a collaboration of representatives from across the University committed to supporting student’s basic needs, including access to adequate food, safe housing, and other necessities. Basic needs security supports students’ physical and mental health, academic performance, and professional development.

To build a foundation for change—especially during these exceptionally challenging days—the committee is gathering data on students’ current levels of basic needs security via an online survey. This year, they have partnered with the Hope Center for College, Community, and Justice at Temple University to implement their nationally recognized Real College Assessment. The data collected via the assessment will allow us to identify gaps, strengthen existing student support services, and identify and create additional community-based connections to ensure students have the resources they need to thrive both inside and outside the classroom.

If you are a student please take the Real College Survey for a chance to win $100!
