Johnson Center for Innovation & Translational Research (JCITR)
There are many barriers for faculty members who are trying to conduct translational research and there are various perceptions about the value of translational research in an academic environment. JCITR must establish an understanding of those perceptions and barriers in order to improve JCITR's customer service and access to the Bloomington Campus. Additionally, we expect that resolving some of the problems faculty encounter while performing this research, will increase the number of faculty members performing translational research successfully. This study consists of an interview stage (small sample of faculty members) and an IUB-wide survey. The data will be used for JCITR's institutional improvement.
The customer satisfaction survey information was used to communicate our success to OVPR and the College after the survey closed in the fall of 2017. The awareness survey was used to set benchmarks with regard to attitudes on the Bloomington campus.
UITS – Learning Technologies Survey aims to assess the IU faculty, staff, and students’ awareness and level of usage of specific teaching, learning, and collaboration services/technologies provided by University Information Technology Services.

RPS recently utilized this data to conduct a SWOT analysis of the Division. RPS is in the process of developing a new strategic plan.
