Institutional Research supports academic departments and programs with data analysis and survey deployment in support of their external reviews.
External Review and Assessment Surveys
Departments and programs administer surveys as part of ongoing assessment efforts, including writing self studies in preparation for external reviews. Below you can find resources for creating department and program surveys as well as summary results for past surveys. For information about the external review process, please contact the Associate Provosts' office.
