VCSU Continues to Earn High Marks in Student Satisfaction

VCSU recently received another great vote of confidence from our students concerning their satisfaction with their experience at VCSU!
Back in 2002, VCSU received the results of a student satisfaction survey commissioned by the North Dakota University System and conducted by Noel-Levitz, a nationally recognized consulting firm specializing in higher education issues. The results of that survey showed that VCSU students were significantly more satisfied than average for students at other four-year colleges both in the state and nationwide.
But just recently, VCSU received the results of the 2004 Noel-Levitz Student Satisfaction Inventory, and once again, VCSU has tremendous reason to be very proud.
The survey covers 11 areas of satisfaction and asks students to rate both the importance of each area and their level of satisfaction. In all of the 11 areas, VCSU students reported greater satisfaction than either state or national group means. Some of the areas in which VCSU students showed the greatest satisfaction included student centeredness, campus support services, academic advising, and academic effectiveness.
Glen Schmalz, VCSU Vice President of Student Affairs, said, "These are great results, but I’m particularly proud that the areas that received the lowest satisfaction ratings in 2002 were the areas that showed the greatest improvement on the latest survey. This clearly shows that our on-going efforts to increase satisfaction are generating results that keep us moving in the right direction."
