Saint Xavier University is committed to the continuous improvement of services, facilities and other resources that support student learning and enhance the quality of the student experience. To this end, the University will gather information from students on a regular basis regarding their opinions, perceptions and needs both inside and outside of the classroom. All student surveys and evaluations sponsored by Saint Xavier University will be coordinated or administered through the Office of Institutional Research.
Methods will include but are not limited to: University-sponsored surveys, interviews, focus groups and other means. Participation in research-based assessment activities is always voluntary, and individual responses are kept entirely confidential. Additionally, before any research activities are conducted at Saint Xavier University, the Institutional Review Board evaluates and approves the entire process. The University encourages full participation, as it is in the best interests of students to share their ideas with those who may be in a position to effect positive changes.
