“The close-knit community has allowed me to feel comfortable getting to know my professors.   In addition, it has helped me step out of my comfort zone more times than I can count and I am grateful for the person RFU has helped me grow into.”

The opportunity to have the interprofessional concept of working with our peers, creating future networks, and coming together to form those bonds to help the community in the future when we are healthcare providers.”

I love how you can be so involved with student life at RFUMS and how life at RFUMS is constantly improving based on student feedback.  Any student can become a leader in an organization or build a new club, participate in cultural shows, volunteer at the UCC and in the community, build long lasting interprofessional relationships, and have their voices heard”

Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science is committed to providing a student-centered campus environment. Every two years we survey our students for feedback to ensure we are providing appropriate resources and services to promote student success and satisfaction on campus.

RFUMS students are overwhelmingly positive about the campus environment. Eight out of ten students would choose RFUMS again if they could.

The findings provided on this website are from the 2019 Student Satisfaction Survey. The results will also show you the change in question responses since our last administration of the survey in 2017. In 2019, 983 students (46%) completed the survey responding to questions related to 87 aspects of our campus environment:

  • Overall Campus Environment
    • Facilities
    • Safety
  • Educational Experience
    • Faculty Advisors/Mentors
    • Faculty
    • Quality of Education
    • Interprofessionalism
  • Academic Resources
    • Library Resources
    • Technology
  • Student Services
    • Academic and Retention Services
    • Career Services
    • Food Service
    • Student Activities and Engagement
    • Fitness and Recreation
    • Student Counseling
    • Student Health Center
    • Student Financial Services

Our students reported satisfaction in 75 (83%) of the questions surveyed: 

  • 97% of our students reported having a comprehensive understanding of interprofessionalism.    
  • 93% of our students reported that there is a commitment to academic excellence on campus.
  • 9 out of 10 students are highly satisfied with our student organizations, activities, and intramural sports programs and feel the academic support services on campus meet their needs.

Overwhelmingly (99%), our students’ report feeling safe on campus.

We appreciate our students’ feedback. There were 8 questions that received lower satisfaction. We are already exploring improvements to campus which address many of those concerns and hope to have a full plan to share by March 2020. We appreciate the feedback of our students and use their feedback to continuously improve the student environment on campus. In fact – one of our students said it best on the survey –

How quickly it felt like I was a part of a family.  My classmates, my instructors, and everyone that I’ve met through the University has been the single most supportive group of people that I’ve ever known, and I can’t imagine going anywhere else for my graduate education.”

RFUMS doesn’t just claim to be about diversity and inclusion, they actually are and make positive efforts to remain that way.”
