Student Experience Survey

The UNTHSC conducts a yearly Student Experience Survey to evaluate students’ overall level of satisfaction with a variety of elements of campus life and to determine opportunities for improvement in academic, co-curricular, and operational programs. The survey addresses academics, educational program services, educational satisfaction, instructional facilities and services, Canvas Learning Platform, Student and Academic Affairs programs and services, Student Health Clinic services, and other institutional offices. Planning and Decision Support within the Office of University Assessment and Accreditation develops the surveys, coordinates the survey administration process, analyzes results, and delivers survey reports.
