Fall 2020 Academic Experience Survey results now available

Results from the Fall 2020 Academic Experience Survey are now available online 

The Fall 2020 Academic Experience Surveys were administered at several points throughout the fall semester. The surveys collected information that enabled mid-semester modifications of support and resources, identified areas for more effective university communication, and created awareness of student and instructor challenges and concerns.

Each survey asked about various topics, such as: 

  • Access to technology and resources 
  • Challenges with instruction and instructional tools  
  • Experiences with the various instruction modes  
  • Academic, personal and health-related concerns  
  • Belonging and campus climate 
  • Experiences with course instructors (for students)  

The surveys were not course specific; each individual received one survey. 

Survey results were reviewed by a small team of faculty, staff and students. The group identified key takeaways and recommendations and presented those after each survey administration to the COVID-19 Academic Planning Group, department chairs, the Academic Dean’s Council and the Provost’s Cabinet for action and implementation.

Key takeaways were posted to the Institutional Research and Analysis website. Recommendations from the surveys have been implemented or are underway.  

OIRA regularly posts reports and statistics for the campus community on its websiteWith questions about any of these reports or to obtain additional data from institutional surveys, contact Heba Ali, research analyst for the office of institutional research and analysis.
