Gauging your peers’ interest in health and human rights is one of the most important ways to not only show that you value and respect their unique perspectives and experiences, but to also better understand and respond to their needs when designing HHR curriculum.— Mona Singh, Student Chapter Leader, Virginia Commonwealth University Medical College
A survey assessing student interest in human rights education can both illustrate popular demand on campus for HHRE and help you publicize your campaign and recruit more supporters amongst the student body.
PHR has created a survey template , which can be personalized to suit your health and human rights education priorities. Virginia Commonwealth University’s Cultural Competency and Interest Assessment  is a good example of a customized survey.
Ideas for circulating the survey:
- Create the survey on Survey Monkey and email the link to all of your classmates and campus listserves
- Post the survey on Facebook or Twitter profiles
- Have a mini pre-class presentation and distribute the survey in classes
- Ask your faculty advisor and their colleagues to email it to their students or pass it out in class
- Go to high-traffic areas on campus and ask students to fill it out
