Who’s Going to the Polls? Utilizing CIRP Data for a Closer Look at Today’s College Students
For over 50 years, the CIRP Freshmen Survey (TFS) has provided data on incoming college students’ background characteristics, high school experiences, attitudes, behaviors, and expectations for college. The instrument collects extensive information that allows for a snapshot of what incoming students are like before they experience college. The survey, created by Dr. Alexander “Sandy” Astin in 1966, has resided at the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA since 1973. To date, over 15 million students at over 1,900 institutions have participated in the survey.
Using information from the 2016-2019 CIRP Freshman Survey data sets, this webinar will provide a closer look at the political views of college freshmen from the past four years. Are today’s college students truly more focused on activism? How do these views stack up compared to their parents? Where do freshmen stand on hot-button political issues?
This program is hosted in an educational partnership between the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors, Holmes Murphy Fraternal Practice, and The Higher Education Center for Alcohol & Drug Misuse Prevention & Recovery.
