The SCSU Survey is an ongoing survey research extension of St. Cloud State University. The Survey performs its research with the mission of serving the academic, public and non-profit sector communities through its commitment to high quality survey research. The Survey provides education and experiential opportunities to researchers and students.

Statewide surveys are conducted once a year in the fall and focus on statewide issues such as election races, current events and other important issues that are present in the state of Minnesota.  During spring semester the Survey conducts an omnibus survey of students enrolled at St. Cloud State University. The Survey also conducts analyses for government agencies (state and local) and for non-profit organizations throughout the year.
