SUN Survey Form: 30-40 minutes Total
Students with SUN have pushed Yale on racial and class equity in financial aid since 2012 and mental healthcare since 2020. The purpose of this form is to record an OVERVIEW of your experiences. We can begin to identify patterns in racial and class inequity and demand solutions if many students share an overview of these topics. It's gonna take all of us to transform campus towards racial and class equity.
