HERI Faculty Survey Begins

Thursday, March 13 2014

Once again this year the University of Idaho is participating in a Faculty Survey conducted every third year by the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA. This comprehensive, nationwide survey of faculty provides a wealth of information on faculty today, including goals that faculty have for undergraduate education, practices and perspectives on pedagogy, attitudes and views on diversity, how they view and value institutional priorities, and career satisfaction, among other topics. This web-based survey is currently available and will run through April of 2014. University of Idaho faculty should have received an invitation to participate via email earlier this week. Participation in this survey is voluntary and the individual responses are anonymous. President Staben and Provost Aiken strongly encourage all faculty to complete the survey in order to have a accurate representation of the variety of UI faculty opinions, attitudes and views, and how UI faculty differ from faculty at other institutions across the country.

More than 350,000 faculty and administrators from 1,200 two- and four-year institutions have participated in the HERI Faculty Survey. The University of Idaho has participated in most administrations since the survey’s inception in 1989. Please contact Archie George or Chris Lighty in Institutional Research and Assessment if you have questions. The University of Idaho Institutional Review Board has certified this project as Exempt.
