Recent Projects

Residential Experience Survey (1/14):  We asked each student who lives on campus to complete this survey about residence hall facilities, programs, staff, and other aspects of living on campus.  We then compared against results from previous years to see where we are getting better and where we need to improve. View the summary.

Graduate Assistant Work-Life Balance and Satisfaction (12/13). We wanted to see how the GAs in our division liked their jobs, and how stress was affecting them as they balance work with being a student. View the summary.

Parent Orientation survey (8/13). We made some big changes to parent orientation this year. Parents were asked to tell us about their experiences during check-in day so we could see how well these changes worked. View the summary.
