The purpose of the Off-Campus Housing Survey is to gather input from current Indiana University-Bloomington student’s leasing experiences in order to help create a renter’s guide so student consumers (as well as staff and faculty) looking to lease in the future can make well-informed decisions when choosing rental properties and landlords.
This is a survey conducted by the Department of Labor (DOL) to gather data from a small sample of faculty about the characteristics of their work (i.e. how much their job involves working with data, people, things). It's not a opinion or satisfaction survey, but is to identify job characteristics.
Overall Response Rate: n/a
Data & Analysis
This survey is conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. I just provide them with a random sample of faculty names in select departments. The data are used for a variety of business and research purposes. Here's a link to the O*Net data and information https://www.onetonline.org/.
The nationally recognized metric for campus sustainability is called the "Sustainability Tracking, Assessment, Rating System" which is administered by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education. Universities are rated based on the progress they are making in terms of sustainability teaching/research as well as sustainability in campus operations. IU Bloomington has the goal of moving from a "silver" to "gold" rating during this academic year—a goal that is important both in terms of reputation and for student recruitment. The survey we are proposing will advance sustainability on campus in several ways: 1) completing a literacy and culture survey that includes a representative sample of the student population earns the university important points towards earning a gold rating; 2) the data and analysis will help us evaluate overall sustainability literacy and determine which schools are performing best in the area and which could benefit from additional work; and 3) the culture part of the survey will allow the Office of Sustainability to make targeted progress when it comes to operational sustainability; analysis and results should provide have a clear indication of which of the following--knowledge, attitudes, norms, or perceived control--are the strongest predictors of different sustainability behaviors on campus. This information will be used to generate targeted awareness campaigns and/or infrastructure improvements related to computing, transportation, food, resource use/recycling, energy, and the campus outdoor landscape.
The Indiana University Sustainability Culture and Literacy Survey was administered in January and February 2017 to acquire baseline information on sustainability knowledge and behaviors among the student population. Literacy scores were mostly as expected, with SPEA students and graduate students performing particularly well compared to students in other academic programs. Student overall sustainability literacy scores also improve as they progress in their studies at IU. Among the sustainability behaviors evaluated in the survey, IU students frequently report turning off the lights, printing doubled-sided, and using active or public transportation; IU students reported recycling and eating organic foods less frequently. The strongest predictor of overall sustainable behavior among students was perceived behavioral control (confidence that one can engage in the activity), followed by attitude and norms. Location of student housing was also related to sustainability behavior, with students living off campus less likely to engage in sustainability behaviors.
The purpose of this survey is to help the Division of Student Affairs better understand undergraduate student experiences and attitudes around bystander intervention practices in various situations. Student responses will be used to formulate effective strategies for programming, education, prevention, and intervention related to bystander intervention practices. Positive social norms will be used to promote positive helping behaviors among students through campus campaigns and Step UP! IU bystander intervention workshops. Data will also be compared with survey responses from the initial needs assessment conducted in 2011 to identify changes to students’ perceptions, attitudes and experiences that will assist with the development of new prevention strategies and enhance existing prevention strategies that aim to create a Culture of Care and safe environment for IU students.
The Needs Assessment indicated that students are witnessing a variety of problematic situations, but they don't always feel like they have the skills to address them. Students are most likely to seek help from friends and other students rather than from a campus resource professional for most problematic situations. Students tend to be unaware of many campus and community support resources, which they cited as the main reason for why they don't seek help from them. Data has been used to launch a #CouragetoCare campaign in conjunction with the Culture of Care student initiative, which includes a bus wrap, bus signs, social media posts, and digital signs encouraging active bystander behaviors in a variety of problematic situations. Information has also been used to improve content included in existing bystander intervention workshops (Step UP! IU and It's On Us: Alcohol and Consent).
The purpose of this survey is to gain a clearer understanding of the industries, sectors, attributes, cultures, and other characteristics attractive to College of Arts + Sciences students when they consider employment after graduation. The Walter Center for Achievement is interested in having new, College-specific data to inform service delivery, programming content and modeling, and strategic priorities for employer relations as it continually strives to provide College students with relevant, customized, and desirable career opportunities for liberal arts and sciences students.
The survey is used to evaluate the multiple dining concepts RPS has implemented across the various neighborhoods on campus. We are trying to understand patron satisfaction with food concepts, meal plan variety and value, carry out options, and various other operations related questions.
Overall Response Rate: The survey was open to the general public so an estimated response rate was not provided. However, 1,811 people completed the survey in 2017, an increase of 301 people from 2016.
Data & Analysis
The Envisions Dining Survey 2017 is used as a yearly assessment of what was RPS Dining until the Summer 2018 semester. The Dining Committee uses the data to analyze trends and review specific location feedback from clients.
The Culturally Engaging Campus Environments (CECE) Survey is designed to measure the 9 CECE indicators that represent the characteristics of optimally inclusive and equitable campus environments. These indicators also denote the 9 elements of environments that allow diverse populations to thrive in college. College and university campuses can use the CECE Survey and these 9 CECE indicators to…
Create dialogue that is centered on the things that matter most when serving diverse student populations.
Diagnose their campus environments from an inclusion and equity perspective.
Identify where these environments can be improved.
Develop plans to cultivate more inclusive and equitable environments.
Create environments that maximize success among all students regardless of their backgrounds and identities.
This is a study conducted by Harvard's Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) to focus on faculty retention. We are trying to understand the reasons faculty with outside offers decide to leave or stay at IU. Other universities will also be participating so we will be able to compare in a broad way patterns for our faculty to those at other participating institutions.
• The purpose of our survey is to understand how students use and access health care while attending IUB. This survey intends to gauge how students perceive the importance of IUB providing health services, value proximity of these services to their environment, and desire access to these services. The population most relevant to our questions includes a random sample of full-time undergraduates.
We are interested in researching the best network practices for retaining students, particularly those from historically underserved populations. What is the ideal environment for cultivating key relationships with institutional agents? We intend to produce an inventory of retention programs (eg. LLCs, scholarship programs) to compare best practices in generating these relationships. Through a student survey, we hope to better understand student involvement in retention programs as it relates to engagement with faculty, alumni, peers, and staff.
As a matter of protocol, OVPR reviews its research/creative activities centers every 3 year (new director) or 5 years (continuing director). IAS is scheduled for a review this spring, and OVPR is working with the Center for Survey Research on developing a survey instrument for distributing to all tenure and tenure track faculty at IU Bloomington. Faculty from every discipline across campus have access to the IAS and we would like to gauge participation, interest, and ask question of those who have received funding from the iAS
Over a field period of approximately three weeks, 458 individuals participated in the web survey; the overall response rate was 26.8%. Most respondents took less than 5 minutes to complete the survey, with the average duration being approximately 4.6 minutes.
This survey information was used in the completion of a 5 year review report that was sent to the Office of the Vice Provost for Research and the Provost for future considerations of the Centers needs.
The purpose of the survey is to understand students' experiences in the first year of college. Specifically, the survey elicits students responses to understand their thoughts, feelings, academic, and social behaviors they engaged in to navigate this difficult transition to college.
Higher Learning Commission conducts surveys of student opinion to inform peer review teams visiting institutions as part of comprehensive evaluations and comprehensive quality reviews. The results are intended to help the peer review team identify possible questions for its meetings with faculty, staff, and students during the visit.
The student opinion survey supports HLC’s efforts to make the accreditation process more open and transparent. It will allow all students, rather than just students who happen to be on campus at the time of a visit, to voice opinions on questions important to them.
The survey and its results are to provide students with an opportunity to participate in the accreditation process and to inform the peer review team. HLC will not use the results for ranking or comparison and will not publish them.
Overall Response Rate: 4.3%
