Collaborating Internationally with Major Research Universities: An Introduction to the Student Experience in the Research (SERU) Consortium
The Student Experience in the Research University (SERU) Consortium is an academic and policy research collaboration based at Berkeley’s Center for Studies in Higher Education at the University of California (CSHE) working in partnership with the University of Minnesota, the International Graduate Insight Group Ltd (i-graduate), the Higher School of Economics – Moscow, and member universities. The SERU Consortium focuses on the undergraduate and graduate student experience at top-tier research intensive universities via SERU Surveys of undergraduate and graduate students that are on-line and census, other sources of institutional data, analysis, sharing of best practices, and collaborating on policy relevant research and reports. The goal is to promote and enhance evidence based management and provide a path for institutional self-improvement. All the UC undergraduate campuses participate in the ugSERU Survey (called UCUES in the UC system). The Consortium recently launched a new SERU Graduate Student Survey (gradSERU). SERU Founding Berkeley PI John Aubrey Douglass and SERU colleagues Gregg Thomson and Tongshan Chang will discuss the formation of the Consortium, research and policy outcomes, and the challenges of sustaining an international collaboration.

About Berkeley International Group (BIG) meetings
The Berkeley International Group is composed of UC Berkeley faculty and staff who meet monthly to participate in informal discussions related to the international work that we all do on campus. Each meeting is hosted by different units on campus. The group meets for one hour during the first week of every month, with the host deciding upon the topic, date, time, and location of the meeting.
