#RealCollege During the Pandemic: Spring 2020 Survey
From the Hope Center website: "The COVID-19 pandemic struck American higher education in March 2020. Campuses closed, students lost jobs, and emergency resources fell far short of their needs. This new report examines the impact on the security of students’ basic needs, as well as multiple indicators of their well-being, including employment, academic engagement, and mental health. The data come from an electronic survey completed by 38,602 students attending 54 colleges and universities in 26 states. This includes 39 two-year colleges and 15 four-year colleges and universities. California institutions are not included in this report; this summer we will issue a special analysis of students attending the 114 California Community Colleges.
We fielded the survey during weeks 4-8 of the pandemic (mid-April to mid-May). We assessed food insecurity over the prior 30 days, and housing insecurity and homelessness affecting students at the time the survey was completed."
