National Resource Center Surveys

  • In Spring 2008, the National Resource Center conducted a survey of student success and learning centers. The purpose of the survey was to gather information on the nature, practices, and evaluation of student success and learning centers. A preliminary summary of the findings of the survey is below:
  • 2006 National Survey on First-Year Seminars In Fall 2006, the National Resource Center conducted the seventh administration of its triennial survey on first-year seminars. The 2006 National Survey on First-Year Seminars continues the Center"s commitment to researching and providing comprehensive information on the nature of first-year seminars. A preliminary summary of findings from the 2006 survey is now available online - simply click on the link below. A more detailed report will be published in the future.   Data Summary
  • Preliminary Findings from the 2005 National Survey on Sophomore-Year Initiatives Methodology & Sophomore-Year Initiatives: An Institutional Overview and Institutional Examples PDF presentation

    After pilot testing in July 2005, the web-based survey was officially administered in October 2005. Invitations to participate in the survey were successfully e-mailed to 1,139 chief student affairs officer at regionally accredited public and private four-year baccalaureate granting institutions in the 50 US states. After two reminders and data clean up, a total of 382 institutions (33.5%) successfully completed the survey. It should be noted that because the survey was sent to student affairs professionals, survey findings may under-represent academic affairs initiatives. Finally, while the sample is not fully representative of the nation's colleges and universities (large and public schools are over-represented) the collection of this data from 382 schools represents the most substantial portrait of sophomore-year initiatives currently available.
