“Tell the real CBU story” is back!
From January until March, CBU students will have the opportunity to have their voices heard on what they may like or dislike about CBU through participating in two nationwide surveys.
The surveys include the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) and the Globe and Mail Student Satisfaction survey.
The NSSE survey is open to first and fourth year CBU students to complete, and surveys what CBU students have done at CBU both inside and outside of the classroom. Qualifying students will receive an email invitation to participate in the survey beginning on January 31st (today!). As a bonus for sharing your CBU story, you will be entered into weekly $100 draws beginning February 10th and a final $500 draw on March 30th.
The second survey, the Globe and Mail Student Satisfaction survey, measures students’ general satisfaction with CBU. The survey results are published in the Globe and Mail’s annual University Report Card. Starting March 7th for two weeks only, undergraduate students are able to complete the survey online.
The two surveys are quick and easy to complete, usually taking less than 15 minutes.
With the data from these surveys, the university and its’ members benefit in two ways; one, the results will provide valuable feedback to the university about student satisfaction; and two, the results will be available for national viewing- allowing CBU to be more competitive nationally, and beyond.
Results from last years’ surveys have been received and has led to the creation of a Student Success Committee – made up of students, faculty reps from each school, and Student Services representatives. The committee will analyze the feedback from students and will look to advise CBU about service offerings for students.
It is crucial for students to get involved and participate in the surveys, telling the real story of CBU. As students, we all have our own personal stories to share, perhaps of inspiring professors, friendly staff, or of having fun at the Pit.
