Polling Program

The Institute opened a polling center in 2015 and began polling students in its 13 colleges, universities and professional schools twice annually. The fall poll assesses students’ attitudes, perceptions and opinions of public policy issues on a state and national level and the spring poll asks about their post-graduation plans, their perceptions, attitudes and opinions on NEPA and their interest in living and working here after graduation.

The students are from a community college, technical school, four-year public and private colleges and universities, a medical school, and a graduate residency program. Students are at the undergraduate, graduate, and professional level in their studies.
