FSU IR completes federally- and state-mandated surveys and reports as required by law. A series of federal surveys collectively referred to as IPEDS is one example of our compliance.
IR annually participates in dozens of publisher surveys, including the U.S. News & World Report, America's Best Colleges; Newsweek Kaplan College Guide; The Princeton Review; and Thompson/Peterson's surveys.
We also complete surveys resulting from FSU's membership in various data exchanges. The annual Oklahoma State University (OSU) Faculty Salary Survey is one example.
IR conducts or coordinates student surveys when requested by FSU senior administrators, collecting data on student or alumni opinions of their education and experiences at FSU. For example, since 2005, FSU has participated in the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) every three years.
