Students, faculty, and staff at Berklee are given the opportunity to share their experiences and opinions with the institution. This includes feedback on programs, campus climate, and satisfaction. These surveys provide valuable information that helps Berklee assess and improve learning and working experiences.

Food Security at Berklee
A recent national survey by the Wisconsin HOPE Lab found that 36 percent of university students were food insecure in the previous 30 days. In fall 2017, Berklee piloted a short food security survey of students on the Boston campus. The survey was intended as a preliminary gauge of campus need to support a proposal for a campus food pantry. It was also an opportunity to assess whether Berklee students are experiencing similar levels of food insecurity as their peers across the country.
Library and Learning Center Assessment
In spring 2016, the Berklee Library and Learning Center administered a survey to the Berklee student body to gain feedback on various services that it offers.
