Data Reports and Surveys
There are a variety of data reports and surveys that occur at St. Catherine University each year. To get access to many of these reports, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request our data request form. This allows us to monitor and track data requests so we have a better sense of what information is important to our colleagues. It also allows us to practice good assessment techniques and follow-up with those of you who have requested data to see how you've used the information - this is a critical step when preparing for institutional accreditation.
All ad hoc data requests, no matter how small, require the completion of this form. Priority may be given to requests most related to aspects of our institutional mission and/or strategic planning. All data requests will be honored to the best of our ability.
