Higher education is undergoing a once-in-a-lifetime transformation amid the pandemic, recession and a national reckoning on race, while facing shifting demographics and growing skepticism about its value. Understanding how these issues affect students is critical for college and university leaders and their decision-making. Student Voice, presented by Inside Higher Ed and College Pulse, ensures that the perspective of current college students is inserted into discussions about timely issues.

With free access to breaking polls, news and analysis about the challenges affecting today’s college students, Student Voice gives institutional leaders the insights they need to address persistent and overlooked student needs. By amplifying and prioritizing the student voice, higher ed leadership teams will be clearer and more confident in doing what is best for their students, and in turn their institutions.

Student Voice, part of the Student Success news hub, explores a different topic each month. Student polling data from College Pulse informs Inside Higher Ed‘s comprehensive coverage, which includes news articles, opinion pieces, webcasts and more. Inside Higher Ed maintains editorial independence and full discretion over its coverage.

Student Voice surveys are designed by College Pulse in conjunction with Inside Higher Ed. Each survey is conducted by College Pulse and respondents are part of College Pulse’s American College Student Panel, which includes over 450,000 undergraduate college student respondents from more than 1,500 two- and four-year colleges and universities in all 50 states. Students are required to provide an .edu email address to join the panel and all invitations to complete surveys are sent using the student’s .edu email address.
