The SFCC Office of Planning and Institutional Effectiveness (OPIE) routinely administers surveys to students and employees.  Conducting surveys is a useful way of gathering insight into what is important to our campus community and allows us to:

  • Measure engagement
  • Give the campus community a voice
  • Increase engagement
  • Direct organizational growth
  • Benchmark results
