LIST OF SURVEYS

The Office of Institutional Research is actively engaged in conducting a robust survey research program that includes participation in nationally developed survey projects as well as the construction and administration of locally-developed survey instruments. The focus of this program is wide-ranging, involving many of the university's constituencies. These survey activities are part of the university's commitment to institutional assessment and effectiveness, and sustain a culture of evidence and institutional improvement. The following provides an overview of some of these efforts, with embedded links directing the reader to more detailed and specific information about each area of activity.


The number of survey projects that involve Rutgers students has increased rapidly in recent years. It has become a concern that the number of surveys has become burdensome and is contributing to a general decrease in survey response rates, particularly with the Rutgers’ student population. In an effort to make the survey process more efficient, the Office of Institutional Research has provided a survey calendar for the current academic year that includes surveys conducted by other departments. Please note that some information may change:
