Surveys & Assessment
The University is committed to improving the educational and personal experiences of our students. A fundamental philosophy underlying this effort is that information used to develop effective policy must include data derived from students themselves.
These pages contain the data and analysis for surveys coordinated/administered by the Office of Institutional Research. Depending on survey timeline and completion dates, additional data and analyses may become available.
Assessment & Research Agenda
The Office of Institutional Research uses the data collected in these surveys to assess student experience and outcomes. We have developed a research agenda to conceptualize our work, which explores the impact of students’ pre-college experiences and college experiences on long-term student outcomes.
