The USG Demographics Survey was started the Spring of 2018 to help understand the make-up of the student government body and understand the representation issues that occur or might occur. Using data analysis and survey methods, the USG Demographics Assessment Team (D.A.T.) will create and distribute the survey and provide a report at the end of each semester discussing the recommendations to help alleviate inequities in representation and understand predictive trends that will occur. The purpose of the USG D.A.T. and Demographics Survey are to establish a researched background and understanding of student representation and provide researched-evidence in what actions USG can do to provide all students with representation.
