Taking Part

Any Canadian university with degree-granting authority may apply to become a member of CUSC-CCREU. Members receive a master data file containing responses to all survey items from all participating member universities, a data file of responses to open-ended questions from their students, and the master (institutional) report. CUSC members are also eligible to attend and participate as a voting member in the CUSC spring meeting and the Annual General Meeting. CUSC members must sign and abide by the Consortium’s Data Licensing and Membership Agreement. The fee for CUSC membership is $500.

Post-secondary institutions that do not wish to become members may participate in CUSC-CCREU surveys at the discretion of the Board. Non-member institutions are not required to sign the Data Licensing and Membership Agreement since they do not receive data from other institutions. Non-member institutions receive data only from their students. Their student’s responses will be excluded from the master data files and report. The fee for non-member participation in the survey is $250.The survey package cost is based on the number of students your institution invites to participate in the survey. This ranges from $2,900 for up to 500 students, to $5,200 for up to 15,000 students. Other options are available for additional charges.

Further details on participation in the 2020 Survey of Middle Years Students will be released after the Annual General Meeting on October 21, 2019.
