The Potential Return to Campus Survey, conducted by Student Affairs Research and Assessment, gathered feedback on students’ perceptions and attitudes about a possible return to campus instruction for the fall 2020 semester following the COVID-19 pandemic. A sample of 16,864 students were selected to take part in the survey. This included 8,000 University Park (UP) undergraduates, 2,000 UP graduate/professional students, and 6,864 Commonwealth Campus (CC) students from eight campuses. The campuses selected were: Abington, Behrend, Dubois, Greater Allegheny, Harrisburg, Hazleton, Shenango, and York.
