Survey Research and Reports

OIR is responsible for administering surveys associated with Dartmouth’s participation in consortia and data exchanges. Target Dartmouth populations for these surveys may include students, faculty, staff, alumni and parents.

Routine surveys of the Dartmouth community provide the College with essential feedback on the educational, academic and/or work experiences of our students, faculty, staff, and parents and the results are carefully considered by our faculty and senior officers and the board of trustees.

Results from the routine surveys of the Dartmouth Community are available for review.

Student Surveys

Every spring, the Office of Institutional Research and the Dean of the College conduct a survey of first-year students.  This survey furthers understanding of the first year experience and identifies areas for improvements.

The Senior Survey gives graduating seniors a chance to reflect on their Dartmouth experience and to share their views.  The feedback from this survey informs decisions about the College's academic mission and campus life.

The Enrolled Student Survey (ESS) is administered periodically to learn more about the Dartmouth undergraduate student experience.  Undergraduates are asked to evaluate their academic experiences and to comment on various services and offices.  The ESS gives the entire undergraduate student body the opportunity to provide feedback on a variety of issues in one survey.

The Dartmouth Health Survey asks questions regarding general health; personal safety including sexual, physical and relationship violence; alcohol and other drugs; sexual health; weight, exercise and nutrition; mental health; health and academic performance; and health and student life. This report presents key findings by section, including Dartmouth trends over time as well as National College Health Assessment (NCHA) comparisons, where applicable.
