Several major surveys are administered at Emmanuel College on a scheduled basis, either annually or in rotation with other surveys.

Please see the survey schedule below. These surveys allow us to hear directly from students during all stages of their time at Emmanuel (from being incoming freshmen, to being currently enrolled students, to being graduating seniors, to being alumni).

The results from these surveys inform planning and decision-making in many areas. Amongst other things, taken together the results of such surveys helps the College to understand the quality of its programs and services, the nature of faculty-student and staff-student interactions, the hopes of incoming students, the priorities and satisfaction of current students, the aspirations and destinations of exiting students, and the value of many facets of the Emmanuel College experience. National surveys that the College participates in also offer the additional benefit of providing us with data from other institutions, which Emmanuel can then use to benchmark ourselves against peer institutions as well as national norms.

On occasion, the College will also administer ad-hoc surveys to respond to particular issues or concerns. For example in spring 2016 the College (sponsored by the Office of Student Affairs and the Counseling Center) administered the Healthy Minds Survey to gather data that would allow us to evaluate the mental health needs on our campus.
