|EXPECTED OUTCOMES OR NEED FOR INITIATIVE/PROGRAM||
· Survey results
|ACTUAL OUTCOMES OR EFFECTIVES OF IMPLEMENTATION ACTIVITIES||The campus is participating in the National Survey of Student Engagement this year. In addition, freshmen are asked to respond to a Freshman Satisfaction Survey each spring. This survey includes questions about campus climate.
During 2000-2001, a telephone survey targeted students who did not return to campus in the Fall of 2000. Questions about campus climate were included in the survey. In addition, focus groups of students were asked about their perceptions of the university. Also, a sample of spring freshmen were called to get their reactions to the university.
|FACTORS INFLUENCING PROGRAM OUTCOMES|
|FUTURE PLANS; WILL YOU DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY, IF SO, WHY||We plan to continue to survey students regarding the campus climate. We will be deciding whether to continue to use the existing surveys or to adopt/develop alternative surveys.|
