Institutional Survey Results

OIRA helps conduct several campus-wide surveys of broad institutional scope on a recurring basis. Results for each administration of these surveys are posted below. Please note that several of the reports on this page are restricted to campus.

2020-21 Academic Experience Surveys

Given the unique challenges of 2020, a series of academic experience surveys were planned for the 2020-21 academic year in which the university can systematically gather and act upon feedback throughout the academic year. The goal of these surveys is to gather feedback from students and instructors about their academic experience during each semester to:

  • Enable mid-semester modifications of support and resources
  • Identify areas for more effective university communication
  • Create awareness of student and instructor challenges and concerns

Remote Instruction Experience Survey

Administered in Spring 2020 to students and instructors to better understand their experiences with the transition to remote instruction in response to COVID-19, this survey asks about access to needed technology and resources, instructional tool usage and satisfaction, and experiences with synchronous and asynchronous instruction. All reports are restricted to campus unless otherwise noted.

In May 2020, preliminary results were shared with the Deans’ Council, Provost’s Cabinet and the COVID-19 Academic Planning Group to support fall 2020 continuity of instruction planning efforts. In June 2020, detailed results were presented to a faculty/staff consultation group comprised of over 50 members. As of the publication of the final report (early July 2020), the consultation group is in the process of identifying key recommendations and actions derived from the results of the survey related to fall 2020 instruction with the goal of implementing those recommendations prior to fall 2020.
