    Results of Student Survey on Food, Housing, and Transportation Insecurity
    • Mallory Newell and Ola Sabawi presented the results of the survey conducted in Spring 2018 on Food, Housing, and Transportation Insecurity.  A significantly higher number of students participated in this survey than in past surveys. Mallory noted that it was the first time that she received emails from students requesting to participate.  The 11% student survey response rate is significantly higher than the typical 5% survey response rate. Having well over 50% of the Survey respondents report housing and transportation insecurity is a sobering result to note.  Senators noted that resources such as campus Food Bank, the weekly Farmer’s Market, and  the Safe Parking program at West Valley College should be widely disseminated.
