For a three week period from February 4-25, 2016, members of the university community, including students, alumni, staff, faculty, donors, University Senate and the Board of Governors, were invited to complete an online survey.
A total of 2,699 survey responses were received representing the following groups:
- 40% students (with approximately 80% indicating undergraduate and 20% graduate)
- 30% staff
- 16% faculty
- 5% alumna/alumnus
- 4% other
- 2% senior administrator
- 2% Board of Governors and Senate members
- 1% donor
The following highlights are displayed using word clouds. Word clouds highlight the most frequently occurring words among survey responses and reveal concepts worth exploring. The larger the word, the more frequently it occurred throughout the data. Some other frequently occurring words (e.g. the, and) were omitted from the list that generated these figures due to their lack of relevancy and meaningfulness in relation to the underlying themes.
