The NACM Survey is an annual national benchmark report on alumni career pathways and mobility at the 5 and 10 year mark. The survey covers five research domains:
1. Career Pathways: number of jobs, industries, titles, geography, full vs. part-time, graduate school completion reate, internships during and after degree
2. Career Satisfaction: purpose, work/life balance, stability, responsibility, enthusiasm
3. Economic Mobility: salary growth, loan debt, family income growing up, current salary range
4. Civic Engagement: community involvement, philanthropy, awards/honors/recognitions
5. Educational Satisfaction: how degree prepared them, transferable knowledge (general education), marketability of major, realtionships/network/mentor(s), faculty/staff influence on success, affinity to school
Overall Response Rate: 75.3%

Data & Analysis
The purpose of the survey was to ask employees to provide quick feedback on their current IU-sponsored medical plan and what is most important to them in a benefit plan in an effort to provide the highest quality, highest value benefits. We will attempt to use this information to inform our planning for employee benefits, but there is no guarantee we can do that if we don’t have budget or resources to implement changes.
The IU Financial Wellness Survey will be administered to undergraduate and graduate students at all of Indiana University's campuses. The goal is to better understand the financial difficulties and coping strategies of students with the hope of informing policy and program initiatives to improve the overall financial wellness of IU's student population.
Survey results have been shared with campus, RC and departments. They will use those results to begin discuss making improvement to their work environment. These will be captured as Action Plans for the unit.
Specific questions can be directed to Amy Batule, IUHR
In the spring of 2012, Auxiliary Business Services and Parking Operations conducted a transportation census of faculty, staff, and students from the Bloomington Campus as part of a transportation planning process to assist us in developing better transportation options for IUB. That effort was part of a transportation demand management (TDM) study that has led to implementation of some significant new transportation programs on campus including the creation of a Hoosier Commuter Club, implementation of an expanded carpool program, establishment of a new vanpool program for residents of the Indianapolis area that work at IUB, and an ongoing project to create a bicycle master plan. You can learn more about all of these alternative transportation programs at: www.alttran.indiana.edu.
In the fall of 2014, we are prepared to update this landmark study so we can continue to promote healthier and more efficient transportation options on campus. This effort is meant to update the information from the 2012 Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Study but it has also been timed to coincide with the project to create for the first time, a Bicycle Master Plan for the Bloomington Campus. Data from this study will be used to develop components of a campus strategy to effectively manage transportation demand with expanded facilities and routes, targeted marketing, optimized parking allotments, and innovative rideshare and other programs that create viable alternative transportation options.
Overall Response Rate: We received a 25% response rate from a random sample of 50% of full-time undergraduate and graduate students (15,000) and a 38% response rate from a random sample of 50% of full-time faculty and staff (4,577).

This survey target all registered HLS first-year students in 2019 Fall with three questions related to their experience at HLS. We hope this survey will enable us to understand our students better and further direct us toward future student services and recruitment.
University Institutional Research and Reporting will administer a survey on behalf of the IU Transfer office to better understand the challenges faced by transfer students as they matriculate into the IU community. The survey will be fielded in the fall of 2019 to transfer students at each campus.
The aim of the Survey on College Adjustment is to understand the mental health needs of students on campus as well as establish whether an internet-based intervention (ICare) is an acceptable way to reduce the burden of untreated depression/anxiety in our students. One of the primary purposes of the survey will be to give the Health Center’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) diagnostic-level prevalence data on depression, generalized anxiety, social anxiety, alcohol, and other substance use disorders. It will provide information on mental disorders not assessed by prior surveys (e.g., mania, panic disorder), as well as other problem behaviors on campus (e.g., difficulty concentrating, sleep problems). It will also inform a decision by the CAPS as to whether to further invest in an online platform for treating depression/anxiety. The treatment opportunity that comes with the survey will help CAPS reduce the burden of untreated mental disorders as well as long waiting times in the student population. Analyses of the results of the survey will also inform prevention efforts and future interventions (e.g., investment for online treatment of disorders other than depression/generalized anxiety) by CAPS as well as other entities on campus (e.g., the LGBTQ+ Center, Office of International Services). This includes the identification of specific at-risk student groups. Finally, the results will also help identify gaps in the treatment of certain disorders and subpopulations. The survey is supported by the Health Center, the Dean of Students, the Office of International Services, and the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences (PBS). The survey is part of a collaboration with the WHO World Mental Health International College Student (WMH-ICS) Initiative, an international partnership to assess the mental health needs of students across 19 countries. The Initiative aims to collect demographic and clinical data that can be used to predict mental disorders as well as engagement with internet-based treatment options, and response to treatment. Access to the WMH-ICS data will allow us to compare IUB students to students worldwide, to identify campus-specific problems. Additionally, the large-scale dataset will allow for the creating of algorithms to help triage students to the level of care at CAPS that may be most appropriate to them (e.g., waiting vs. internet CBT vs. a more intensive treatment option). Approximately 75% of all mental disorders have their onsets prior to the age of 24, and these early-onset cases are related to poorer clinical and functional outcomes than later-onset cases (Kessler et al., 2007). There is evidence that the prevalence of depression and anxiety is increasing in college sample (Gallagher, 2008, Mackenzie et al., 2011), underscoring the need to treat these specific disorders. The college years are also associated with a significant increase in risky health behaviors, such as inconsistent sleep and eating schedules and excessive alcohol/cannabis use. Collectively, these mental disorders and risky behaviors are associated with low academic attainment (Bruffaerts et al., 2018). Moreover, depression, anxiety and other disorders have been associated with college attrition (Auerbach et al., 2016). Thus, this collective effort represents an important step towards understanding, and attempting to reduce, the public health burden of mental illness in our student body.
• The overall response rate to our survey was 11% (n = 1,525)
• Male-identified and Black/Hispanic students were underrepresented suggesting that we need to do more targeted outreach with these groups.
• Rates of depression (17%) and generalized anxiety (23%) in the past year were high.
• Treatment utilization is very low with counseling (11%) and medications (12%) only being used by a small portion of students.
• Black and Asian students report high levels of willingness to seek treatment but had low rates of utilization, especially of medications. This implies a need to identify barriers to treatment, including stigma, among these groups.
• Many students (62%) appear interested in internet and mobile options for mental health. This suggests that internet-based options could be a feasible addition to the repertoire of treatment options on campus. Indeed, CAPS recently formed a collaboration with an online self-help program: WellTrack.
• In addition to the more “obvious” mental health complaints (e.g., depression, anxiety), students very often described struggling with sleep (32%) and concentration difficulties (27%) at levels high enough to meet clinical screening criteria. This underscores the needs for specific interventions for these symptoms as well as suggests for health providers on campus to consider mental health issues in students that are referred with these complaints.
• Although many students drink alcohol or use cannabis, very few actually reach the levels of possible alcohol or drug use disorder (<5%). Interestingly, our students overestimate how much drinking is happening on campus. This suggests that students need more accurate information about how frequently substance use actually occurs: correcting norms is an intervention that can be conducted at large scale and has been effective in other places.
In the coming months, we will be conducting analyses of specific subgroups on campus (e.g., LGBT students, international students) to explore disparities in the mental health of our students.

The purpose of the survey is to ascertain whether students who live off campus are less connected, or feel less connected, to campus, and are thus less aware of the services the university offers. Specifically, the results will be used to determine the need for an off-campus services office for students living off campus.
The purpose of this survey is to gather student perspectives concerning the collection, protection, and use of students' data by the University. A random sample of undergraduate students will be surveyed, and results will be used to inform recommendations surrounding Indiana University's data landscape.
Overall Response Rate: 9.8%
