The Australasian Union of Jewish Students is providing an opportunity for university students and the Jewish youth of the community to participate in a special survey during Orientation Week (O-week) and the first few weeks of university this semester.

An unprecedented initiative, the purpose of this survey is to gain an understanding of students’ preferences and perceptions of university societies and clubs, particularly those that are religious or cultural in nature such as AUJS.

“This survey is being undertaken to enable AUJS to gain an appreciation of how it is viewed by the general student body and how appealing it is to potential AUJS members”, said Yossi Reicher, AUJS national vice chairperson. The survey includes questions in relation to how AUJS rates on the various “costs” and “benefits” factors that apply to university clubs. Respondents are also provided with the opportunity to comment on how AUJS can more effectively target students and achieve its goals.

The survey opened this week to coincide with the commencement of O-week and will be open for the duration of March to enable returning members to complete the survey. Flyers promoting the survey have been distributed in each of the Orientation bags which members receive upon signing up to AUJS. The survey will be heavily promoted through social media.

“We have endeavoured to ensure that students of all backgrounds and affiliations complete the survey to ensure that the results are truly representative of the general student body,” said Reicher. To achieve this, youth movements and other organisations such as Hillel and Network in NSW will be encouraged to complete the survey.

The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete and those who complete it will be given a chance to enter the draw to win a share of prizes including two iPad mini’s, five $50 Westfield shopping cards, and two tickets to the AUJS Ball.

“AUJS will reflect on the results of this survey and will take this research into account when planning our future events, campaigns and initiatives. I encourage you to complete the survey to have your voice heard. Be a part of this unparalleled attempt by AUJS to truly gauge the perceptions of Jewish students across Australasia. This will ensure that AUJS continues to enrich the university experience of students for years to come,” said Reicher.
