In order to better understand the experiences and opinions of various campus populations, OIRP administers a series of recurring university surveys, including those specifically targeted at incoming first year students, incoming transfer students, sophomores, graduating seniors, and alumni. We also routinely survey all undergraduate and graduate students as part of our ongoing efforts to assess the campus climate. NC State first year students and seniors participate in the National Survey of Student Engagement, thereby providing us with normative data for those groups. OIRP also collaborates with academic units to develop and administer program-specific surveys to their graduating seniors and alumni. The data provided through these various surveys support evidence-driven planning and assessment throughout the university, and are used by administrators, academic and non-academic offices, colleges and departments, UNC-General Administration, and the media.
Extensive documentation and reports on results from our student and alumni surveys are available on our website. Available reports typically include those detailing the survey methodology and response rates, a copy of the questionnaire, a detailed summary of the overall results, and tables of results broken out by various sub-groups (e.g., gender, race/ethnicity), and by college and academic department. Additional reports are available on request.
