students of varied backgroundsYour representation matters: the Student Self-Identification Survey has been updated and re-launched for Fall 2023.

Survey to help University address student needs

The University of Windsor invites all undergraduate and graduate students to complete the updated and re-launched Student Self-identification Survey. First launched in 2020, the survey has been revised based on campus community feedback and is accessible through the UWinsite Student portal.

The survey allows students to self-identify their Indigenous identity, ethnicity, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, and more, helping the University identify and address the intersecting needs and concerns students face in their academic journeys.

Clinton Beckford, vice-president, people, equity, and inclusion, encourages students to participate to support the development of evidence-based strategies that effectively target systemic barriers and inequities they may experience in academia.

“Student representation matters, and the University of Windsor is excited to continue its work toward building an inclusive, supportive learning environment for all students,” Dr. Beckford says.

The survey should take only five minutes to complete, and students who have completed it in the past are encouraged to log into UWinsite and update their answers to ensure that they are accurate given changes to some questions.

More information, including answers to frequently asked questions about the survey, is available on the VP People, Equity, and Inclusion website.
