First Year Surveys

Cornerstone Pre and Post Surveys

Students enrolled in UNIV 1000: First-Year Cornerstone are asked to take a survey in the fall and again in the spring.  These surveys ask students to to rate their level of proficiency in that areas of integrated communication (writing and speaking), student success, and civility.  Results from these surveys help faculty members to measure their students' perceived learning gains, an important piece of information as they work to continually improve the course.

IDEALS (Interfaith Diversity Experiences and Attitudes Longitudinal Survey)

This survey is part of a national research study examining the impact of college experiences on students' interfaith behaviors and attitudes.  The survey will be sent to a random sample of first-year students in late September, and the survey will close in early November.  Those who complete the fall survey will be invited to respond to IDEALS again in the 2016 spring semester.
