At many colleges and universities, the spring semester is typically when institutions administer campus climate surveys. These surveys are powerful tools for senior leaders and campus administrators to better understand students’ perceptions and experiences, identify strengths and areas for improvement, and measure year-over-year progress on key initiatives.
Across the last few days, EAB has received questions from partners wanting to know whether they should move forward with their campus climate survey administration plans given the disruptions caused by COVID-19.
While institution’s decision about whether to proceed with a survey will differ based on circumstances on-the-ground, we wanted to outline a few broad factors to consider as you make this decision.
