Faculty Surveys & Reports

The following surveys have been administered at Southwestern University and the subsequent reports are available on this page. As new reports become available, they will be added to the list.

HIGHER EDUCATION RESEARCH INSTITUTE (HERI) FACULTY SURVEY

The HERI Faculty Survey is designed to provide institutions with actionable information on important and timely issues. It includes topics such as pedagogical practices, faculty goals and expectations for students, research and service activities, sources of stress and satisfaction, and the connection between learning in the classroom and practices in the local and global community.

MEASURING INFORMATION SERVICE OUTCOMES (MISO)

The MISO Survey is a web-based quantitative survey designed to measure how faculty, students, and staff view library and computing services in higher education.

FACULTY SURVEY OF STUDENT ENGAGEMENT (FSSE)

Southwestern participated in the pilot administration of this survey in 2003. It is designed to measure faculty expectations of student engagement in educational practices that are empirically linked with high levels of learning and development. The survey also collects information about how faculty members spend their time related to professorial activities and the kinds of learning experiences their institution emphasizes.
