Student Satisfaction and Student Success in the University System of Georgia. AIR 1999 Annual Forum Paper.
Walker-Marshall, Albertine; Hudson, Cathie Mayes
This paper presents findings of a study which analyzed the relationship between student satisfaction and indicators of student success in the 34 institutions of the University System of Georgia (USG). A student satisfaction survey was administered to about 26,000 undergraduates and the results were merged with the system's student information system to track students over time. Preliminary data indicated that satisfied students were more likely to be successful than those who were less satisfied with college. Major findings indicated: (1) overall, 7 out of 10 USG students were positive about the services and environments at their institution; (2) 8 out of 10 USG two-year college respondents were satisfied with their institution; (3) students who were well-prepared for college academically tended to express high levels of satisfaction with college; (4) students who attended their first-choice institution tended to express high levels of satisfaction; (5) first-generation college students tended to express high levels of satisfaction with college; and (6) students with high levels of satisfaction in their freshman year were more likely to persist in college. Appendices provide background information on respondents and compare respondents to a national user group. (Contains 8 figures and 2 references.) (DB)
