Take advantage of the Great Colleges program by using the process as a springboard for a more comprehensive institution-wide survey. Applicants can customize certain components of the faculty/staff survey, such as adding/customizing demographics and adding/customizing statements and/or questions. They may also broaden the survey audience to include other staff not captured as part of the Great Colleges program. Results can still be used for the recognition component of the Great Colleges as long as the survey is conducted between January – April 2018.
