For institutions that would like to include additional faculty and/or staff in the survey process, there are three ways to do so.

Surveying Other Staff

The oversampling of Other Staff is seamless, cost-effective and will be conducted in conjunction with the Great Colleges survey process. We will use the following standardized “Other Staff” job roles:

Administrative Professionals (Secretarial/Clerical), Skilled Crafts, Technical /Paraprofessional, Grounds Staff, Police / Security Guard, Housekeepers, Service Maintenance, Clerk, Motor Vehicle Operators, Food Service Workers & Other.

Costs will vary by the number of Other Staff involved as well as method of delivery (e.g., online, log-in sets).

Surveying Additional Faculty, Administrators, Exempt Professional Staff, Non-exempt Staff, and Adjuncts

Some schools have requested the ability to survey additional Faculty, Administrators, Exempt Professional Staff, Non-exempt Staff, and Adjuncts as part of the process.

Costs will vary by the number of additional staff involved as well as method of delivery (e.g., online, log-in sets).

Conducting a customized, all inclusive, institution wide-climate survey

Costs will vary based on the level of customization and the number of additional faculty and staff surveyed.

Reports Included with Oversampling Fee

Schools that oversample will receive the standard three Participation Reports that will summarize the results from the random sample of employees that will be used for recognition purposes. In addition, schools that oversample will receive two additional reports that will summarize findings from the entire survey audience (see below for samples of these reports).

  • An Overall Survey Results Report that includes a column with benchmarking data from schools that also chose to oversample (FAS+).
  • An Overall Survey Results Report by Job Category which will include the additional employees surveyed.
