National Institutional Priorities Report, 2003.
USA Group Noel-Levitz, Iowa City, IA.
This report describes the seventh annual National Institutional Priorities Study conducted to determine the perceptions of faculty, administration, and staff regarding areas of highest importance and areas of greatest and least agreement on meeting student expectations. Also identified were the greatest performance gaps between levels of performance and levels of agreement. The survey uses the Institutional Priorities Survey (ISP) to gather information. The 2003 report contains data from 248 colleges and universities. The personnel populations by institution type include: 10,528 from 4-year public institutions; 12,412 from 4-year private institutions; and 14,027 from 2-year community, junior, and technical colleges. Mean scores for importance, agreement, and the performance gap are given for 13 (4-year institutions) or 12 (other institutions) scales of the instrument. A matrix is presented that can be used to arrange institutional improvement actions by highest priority. Strengths and challenges to the institution are summarized by institution type, and trends in importance, agreement, and performance gaps are also summarized across the most recent 5 years of data.
