Board of Aeons survey

Dear Biology Students,

We are the members of the Board of Aeons, a student advisory group to President McRobbie. Each year, the Board selects a few topics to research for the year. As part of our work, we are conducting an assessment of how well IU is preparing students for post-graduation success. To do this, we want to know what kinds of things you participate in at IU and how prepared you think you are for life after college.

We look forward to your response, and the link to our survey can be found below. It should take you no more than 15 minutes to complete the survey. Thanks for your participation!
