2019 Students Speak Survey Goes Live on March 1

Every year the Center for Research and Service conducts the Illinois Tech Students Speak Survey, which is used to collect data from students about their experiences. The data collected are used to help identify areas where the university can further improve students’ experiences and the results are presented to members of the university leadership (president, provost, vice provosts, and department directors). We are only surveying five areas this year to allow us to focus most on areas that might benefit from student feedback.

As a part of this project, a committee of student volunteers (from the President’s Student Advisory Council and others throughout Illinois Tech) formed to develop and administer the survey. This committee is responsible for identifying the areas to be surveyed, interviewing the stakeholders to ask their opinions on the strengths and deficiencies, generating the questions, advertising, collecting the responses, and finally, presenting the results to the university leadership.

The Center for Research and Service and the student committee has the manpower, determination, and contacts to ensure that the right areas of university are surveyed each year and that the potential issues concerning each area are presented on the survey. But this project thrives on student participation!

We need you to gauge what has been working well and what needs to be improved. This is a great opportunity to make your voices heard and all we need to make the change happen is a few minutes of your time to take the survey. The survey will go live on March 1 and continues through March 15. Names of participants will be entered into a raffle drawing where they have a chance to win $20 Visa gift cards.

All students will be sent an email with a link to the survey, but in case you miss it, simply go to this link and complete the survey once it goes live. In addition, you can stop by the kiosk that will be set up on the bridge in MTCC during the lunch hour. Remember that only a few minutes of your time can make a difference!
