Please join Amanda Udis-Kessler, Director of Assessment and Program Review, for an update on the life of the CC faculty as captured by responses to the 2016-2017 HERI Faculty Survey.
The HERI Faculty Survey provides institutions with a comprehensive, research-based picture of key aspects of the faculty experience. Since 1989 over 1,100 two-and four- year institutions have used results from this survey to connect faculty practices, values and priorities to institutional success and drive improvement efforts.

The HERI Faculty Survey is designed to provide institutions with actionable information on important and timely issues. It includes topics such as pedagogical practices, campus climate, faculty goals and expectations for students, research and service activities, sources of stress and satisfaction, and the connection between learning in the classroom and practices in the local and global community.

Gaylord Hall, April 10th
Doors open at 11:45
