Racial justice has gotten renewed attention in the past year, both within campus environments (even those functioning remotely) and in surrounding communities. That has impacted what students are experiencing and what they believe colleges should be doing, reveals the latest Student Voice survey, conducted by Inside Higher Ed and College Pulse and presented by Kaplan.

The survey of 2,000 students, conducted April 5 to 15, includes representation from all races, including more than 1,100 white students and about 800 people of color (with the remaining respondents not selecting any of the races listed).

Below are some highlights from the survey results; more data and an analysis of top results can be found here. To explore the data further, request the full survey results.
