Students in the School of Business and Entrepreneurship Respond to a Satisfaction Survey: A Comparison between On-Campus Students and Off-Campus Students.
MacFarland, Thomas W.
Levels of satisfaction with program and services were assessed for students in the School of Business and Entrepreneurship at Nova Southeastern University, Florida. Usable responses were received from 391 students (193 on-campus, 195 off-campus, and 3 others) from the population of 2,184 students. Survey statements were worded using language from the criteria for accreditation of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. More than 92% of all statements received a mean rating of 3.0 or better on a 5-point scale, indicating positive satisfaction with academic program and student services. Overall ratings between on-campus and off-campus students were nearly equal, although for approximately 45% of all survey statements, off-campus students provided higher mean ratings than on-campus students. For approximately 55% of all statements, on-campus students provided higher mean ratings. Results support the assumption that the university needed to initiate activities to increase access to the university's technology-based information resource infrastructure for off-campus students.
