Student food security survey underway

March 8, 2017

Lexie Williams, a senior public health and university honors student, is conducting a survey among all of our students to determine the extent to which they are experiencing not having enough healthy foods available or accessible to them. The results of the survey will be shared with appropriate NIU campus organizations but will be reported in an aggregate form, with no identification of individual students, and may be used to improve student services in the future. The survey results and your participation are confidential and the research project has been approved as “expedited” by the NIU Institutional Review Board (IRB).

By taking the survey, you will become better aware of your own levels of food security and learn about resources that can be of assistance to improve your diet and health.

All students Рundergraduate, graduate and anyone taking classes at NIU Рwho participate in the survey by Friday, April 14, 2017 will be entered into a drawing for many chances to win a grocery bag worth $50, $75 or $100 of groceries.
