Institutional Surveys Consortium

The Institutional Surveys Consortium (ISC) is made up of thirteen 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. Contact the ISC to notify us of a major survey initiative, to seek survey advice, or for general inquiries.

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.

ISC values:

  1. Enhancing opportunities for the university’s voices to be heard.
  2. Collaborating to align and improve survey efforts across campus.
  3. Sharing results with survey stakeholders and respondents in useful ways.
  4. Amplifying awareness of survey activities and transparency of survey results as a means to support university decision-making.
  5. Creating a deeper understanding of institutional trends and actions taken based on survey data.
