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

Freshmen are surveyed on a range of topics before they arrive on campus. The topics include high school activities, expectations of the college experience, college finances, attitudes, values, life goals, and reasons for attending Dartmouth.

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.

Undergraduates awarded a degree between July 1 and June 30 of a given academic year complete this survey when picking up academic regalia.  The survey asks about future plans, including further education and employment.

The Enrolled Student Survey (ESS) examines day-to-day student activities, modes of student-student and student-faculty interactions, student use of institutional resources, and environmental factors that relate to engagement.

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.

A Dean of the College survey administered annually to better understand the campus living experience of undergraduate students at Dartmouth. The 2014 survey covered topics such as students’ space and surroundings, alcohol use, caring about community, and advising.
