The Institutional Surveys Consortium (ISC) is made up of university representatives with a vested interest in and knowledge of UT surveys designed to inform university decision-making. The ISC meets monthly to discuss survey-related needs and inform each other of survey initiatives or results.
ISC Goal: To improve the coordination, alignment, accessibility, distribution, and communication of institutional surveys in order to improve the use of survey data for planning and decision-making efforts across campus that will lead to better student, faculty, staff, and post-graduate outcomes.
- Enhancing opportunities for the university’s voices to be heard.
- Collaborating to align and improve survey efforts across campus.
- Sharing results with survey stakeholders and respondents in useful ways.
- Amplifying awareness of survey activities and transparency of survey results as a means to support university decision-making.
- Creating a deeper understanding of institutional trends and actions taken based on survey data.
Contact the ISC before conducting a survey project. They can provide recommendations on the need for and value of the survey project, as well as direct you to survey experts who can potentially assist you with your project.
