Starting February 20th, 2014, all faculty received an email inviting them to participate in the HERI.  This is our 7th time participating in the HERI.  We also participated in 1992, 1995, 1998, 2001, 2004, 2007 & 2010.   

The Higher Education Research Institute or The HERI Faculty Survey provides institutions with a comprehensive, research-based picture of key aspects of the faculty experience. Since 1989 over 1,100 two-and four- year institutions have used results from this survey to connect faculty practices, values and priorities to institutional success and drive improvement efforts.

The HERI Faculty Survey is designed to provide institutions with actionable information on important and timely issues. It includes topics such as pedagogical practices, faculty goals and expectations for students, research and service activities, sources of stress and satisfaction, and the connection between learning in the classroom and practices in the local and global community.

Results from the HERI Faculty Survey have been used in strategic planning, faculty recruitment and retention, faculty development activities, assessment and accreditation, and discussions relating pedagogy to student learning experiences.

If you have any questions about the HERI survey, please contact Institutional Research in Erwin 221, ext 5553, or at
