FALL 2020 Academic Experience Surveys


The Fall 2020 Academic Experience Surveys are a set of pulse surveys administered across the fall semester to students and instructors to better understand their experiences teaching and learning during the fall 2020 semester. The goal of these surveys is to gather information about and quickly react to improve the academic experience throughout the term. These surveys ask about access to technology and resources, challenges with instruction and instructional tools, experiences with various instruction modes, concerns covering a range of topics, perceptions of health and safety, belonging and climate, and (for students) experiences with course instructors. The surveys are not course specific; each individual receives one survey.

How will results be used?

Within a week of each survey’s closing date, results will be reviewed by a small team of faculty, staff and students, and recommendations from this group will be communicated to the COVID-19 Academic Planning Group, the Deans’ Council and the Provost’s Cabinet for action and implementation.

For examples of how results from past surveys have been used, see the summary of significant outcomes from the Spring 2020 Remote Instruction Survey; results from this and other surveys can be found here.

Access to results

Key take-aways from each survey will be published to the campus community on this webpage and communicated via an email to respondents and a post in Marquette Today. A final report combining results from all surveys will be posted by the end of January 2021.
