UCLA’s unit for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion has developed an App for gauging how students feel on campus. The app, BruinXperience, provides a space for students to communicate their experiences (good, bad, indifferent) at UCLA. In the current Beta version, only 1500 students will get the App. Every two weeks, they’ll get an alert to answer two questions about their thoughts, feelings, and experiences at that moment. They’ll have up to 24 hours after that alert to complete 2 short questions, which should take them no more than 5 minutes total. If they have something to share between the two-week intervals, they can use the “Share Your Thoughts” section in the app. To stimulate the use of the App, the unit is giving out quarterly prizes that range from a modest $5 to a Smartphone.
