The student voice plays a crucial role in assessing campus life. More than 23,000 university students responded to Maclean’s online survey, giving their opinions on professors and staff, residence life, and opportunities for extracurricular activities and experiential education, such as co-op programs. Students also weighed in on such topical issues as mental health services and whether they think their university is doing enough to prevent sexual assault on campus. This year, Maclean’s introduced a new question asking students to rate how well their university is making Indigenous histories, cultures and languages visible on campus. Scholarships Canada, a site that helps students find financial support, assisted in the distribution of the survey.
