The HBCU Student Criminal Justice Reform Poll's results supply policy makers, administrators, and community leaders with data that they can use to inform justice-oriented policies and strategies for building student engagement in the political process.
The poll was not weighted due to our purposive, non-random approach to sample collection. A convenience sampling approach was utilized. University-level data provide meaningful opportunities for university comparisons and can inform strategic initiatives and programming. Though the results are not generalizable beyond Texas Southern University, they do provide a springboard from which to begin sampling this often under-examined population.
Our poll was conducted through the award-winning civic engagement platform that uses quick web-surveys to transform the way community leaders connect with residents and other stakeholders, created by Polco.
