The University of Hawai‘i Bookstore System is currently participating in Student Watch, a national research initiative that gauges college student attitudes and behaviors concerning course materials, online learning and technology.

Student Watch is funded by the NACS Foundation, a subsidiary of the National Association of College Stores (NACS).

Students are encouraged to participate in the survey by going to www.studentwatch.org from October 28, 2015 to November 13, 2015. As an incentive to participate, one respondent from each UH campus will win a $50 UH Bookstore gift card. Every student that completes the survey at participating schools will also be entered to win the grand prize of $1,000.

“We are excited to take part in this national research initiative,” said Tricia Ejima, UH Bookstores Interim Director. “On a local level, the results of the survey will help our nine bookstores better meet students' needs and evaluate our performance.”

The study is being conducted on more than 60 campuses across the U.S. and Canada, with a focus on helping college stores better understand the evolution of course materials, how they can best support their students and how technology and online learning will play a role in the future of higher education.
