In 2001, Campus Labs (formerly StudentVoice) was formed with a very simple goal: to collect information from students that could be used to impact programs and services. Since that time, Campus Labs has evolved from one member campus to over 650, as more institutions embrace assessment on every level of their campus.
Campus Labs quickly became the leading platform and service provider for assessment in higher education. Today, Campus Labs is the only specialized, comprehensive assessment program that combines data collection, reporting, organization, and campus-wide integration. Since its inception, top university administrators across North America have partnered with Campus Labs on innovative assessment activities.
