Survey will help chart future of Bernhard Center

March 27, 2006

KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University students can win one of five iPods or one of 20 $100 gift cards just for completing an online survey about the services and programs offered in WMU's Bernhard Center.

Sponsored by WMU's Division of Student Affairs, the Bernhard Center survey will play a key role in decisions ranging from changes in the physical layout of the building to the kinds of programs and services offered there. Both undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to participate in the survey. Faculty and staff also are invited to complete the survey, but only students are eligible to win prizes.

The survey is available beginning today through Monday, April 10, and can be accessed through the Individualized Announcements channel at the top center of the home tab of GoWMU, the University's secure intranet portal. The survey can be accessed directly at www.wmich.edu/bernhard/survey.

"This is an opportunity for students to voice their opinions," says Dr. Diane Anderson, vice president for student affairs and dean of students. "Student input is critical to all the decisions that need to be made about the Bernhard Center."

As the student union of WMU, the Bernhard Center plays a major role in developing a sense of community on campus. It is a center for learning experiences outside of the classroom, social interaction, recreation and entertainment.

The Bernhard Center survey was created by Brailsford & Dunlavey, a facility planning and program management firm based in Washington, D.C.
