The Office of Institutional Effectiveness regularly administers a number of surveys to students and selected surveys to faculty and staff members. The results of these surveys help us to better understand our university community, including the areas in which the university is succeeding and those that need more focus which will lead to substantial improvements. Group comparisons, trends, and peer university comparisons are included wherever possible.
Below are the links to result summaries about some of our key surveys:
MAP-Works (first-year students, sophomores, and transfers)
National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE)
Graduate Exit Survey
Coalition on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) Survey of Tenure-Track Faculty Members
First-Year Student Survey
Community Engagement Impact Survey Report
Student Campus Climate Survey Report
Workplace Environment Survey
Responses to open-ended items were compiled separately and have been reviewed by the President and appropriate vice presidents. Due to the specific and personal nature of the opinions expressed in the open-ended responses, the responses will not be publicly released but will be used for internal deliberative purposes.
