Developed and administered by the Cooperative Institutional Research Program (CIRP) out of the University of California – Los Angeles (UCLA), the Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) Faculty Survey has been designed to provide institutions with information pertaining to the faculty experience. According to the HERI website: “[The survey] includes topics such as pedagogical practices, faculty goals and expectations for students, research and service activities, sources of stress and satisfaction, and the connection between learning in the classroom and practices in the local and global community.”
Universities that choose to participate in this web-based survey, which is administered every three years, pay a survey administration fee. HERI provides participants with comprehensive information about the faculty experience at participating institutions. This information can be used to identify and address issues that may contribute to student success.
UW-Whitewater faculty participated in the HERI Faculty Survey in Spring 2017.
