Assess the priorities of campus administrators, staff,
and faculty with their perceptions of the student experience.
Keep your retention initiatives on track by using the Institutional Priorities Survey, the parallel to the Student Satisfaction Inventory™ for faculty, administration, and staff.
Using the two surveys simultaneously reveals areas of agreement and disagreement between students and campus personnel, so you can:
- Confirm further the accuracy of your students’ perceptions
- Identify areas for new initiatives that will be well-received campuswide (see illustration)
- Gain an understanding of your campus climate from a faculty/staff perspective
By knowing which issues everyone agrees are important, you’ll be prepared to implement programs that are well-received, and you’ll learn when advance work is necessary to bring particular campus audiences on board with the rest.
