Institutional Research and Analysis’ annual Survey Factbook is a consolidation of fact sheets relating to the previous year’s primary institutional surveys.

These fact sheets serve as a resource for UST personnel when developing policies and making program decisions, and provide administrators with baseline information to develop measurable outcomes and establish achievable goals; in addition, the fact book includes the current Survey Policy narrative and a five-year institutional survey calendar.
