Available in online and paper formats

Administer the College Employee Satisfaction Survey online or with paper-and-pencil surveys. Both formats provide an efficient, cost-effective way to survey employee attitudes and satisfaction.

Designed exclusively for colleges and universities

Unlike other employee surveys, the College Employee Satisfaction Survey addresses areas specific to working on college campuses. Questions on interdepartmental communication, campus mission, enrollment, and decision making reveal attitudes on issues critical to higher education. The reports for two-year community and technical colleges and four-year private institutions include national norms. 

The College Employee Satisfaction Survey is appropriate for every level of college employee: administrators, campus staff, and faculty members.
