University of Calgary

Globe and Mail student survey begins this week

UToday HomeFebruary 27, 2012

University of Calgary undergraduate students are encouraged to provide their thoughts on teaching, satisfaction with campus services and quality of life at the university by taking part in an anonymous survey that provides the basis for the Globe and Mail’s annual university ratings published each fall.

“The Canadian University Report provides us with valuable information about student satisfaction. It is important that we have a representative sample of our student population providing their input to help us identify ways in which we can improve the student experience on campus,” said Provost and Vice-President (Academic) Dru Marshall. “I encourage all undergrads to take part in the survey, which is entirely voluntary and anonymous.”

The online survey administered across Canada by Higher Education Strategy Associates covers topics ranging from teaching and student services to extracurricular activities and quality of life in Calgary. Students can complete the survey from Feb. 29 to March 15 and enter to win prizes for participating. Results of the survey will be published in the Globe and Mail’s Canadian University Report in November and will be forwarded to the university so they can be used to improve the educational experience for current and future students.

 

The survey will be available starting Wednesday at: canadianuniversityreport.ca/?email&Institution=054

Results from the 2011 Canadian University Report can be found online at: www.globecampus.ca/navigator2/university-of-calgary-the/
