National Student Satisfaction and Priorities Report. National Research Report, 2012
Noel-Levitz, Inc
Tracking student satisfaction and priorities is an important task for many college campuses, especially in challenging economic times when resources cannot afford to be wasted. When campuses understand the priorities of their students, resources can be used efficiently and effectively. Student satisfaction is a key component of student life and learning, a gauge of whether an institution is providing an experience that students deem worthwhile. By simultaneously assessing satisfaction and priorities, campuses can determine which areas demand their attention and make decisions that will have the greatest impact on the student experience. This report examines the self-reported satisfaction and priorities of students enrolled at career and private schools, providing an assessment of student views on the quality of life and learning at these campuses. The "2012 National Student Satisfaction and Priorities Report" presents the responses to the Noel-Levitz Student Satisfaction Inventory[TM] (SSI) from more than 870,000 students at 1,143 four-year and two-year public and private institutions across North America. This year's study presents the overall satisfaction levels across institutional types, with a special emphasis on the experiences of more than 181,000 students at 315 two-year career and private schools. Appended are: (1) List of schools; (2) Demographics for career and private schools; and (3) Five-year trends at career and private schools.
