Every few years, MIT invites the parents of undergraduates to participate in a parent survey.

This survey asks parents to share their perspectives about their child's college experience, the usefulness of information MIT sends to parents, satisfaction with various aspects of MIT, how they finance an MIT education, and perceptions of their child's abilities.
