Later this month, SUNY Cortland will invite undergraduate students to participate in the SUNY Student Opinion Survey (SOS) to understand how students perceive the quality of different programs and services at the College.
The survey will be administered online by ACT, the same company that runs the standardized high school exam.
The students to be contacted — undergraduates 18 years of age and older who are enrolled in at least one class on campus during spring semester 2018 — will receive an email from an ACT address with instructions on how to participate in the survey.
The 2017-18 SOS was designed to be completed in about 30 minutes. Participation is encouraged but voluntary.
Students who respond to the survey will be entered into a raffle to win gift certificates from the Cortland Downtown Partnership.
Since 1985, the SOS has been conducted at most SUNY colleges and universities. The last survey was administered at SUNY Cortland in Spring 2015.
The College’s Institutional Research and Assessments Office takes the results of the survey seriously. Next fall, the IRA Office will share results with the campus community. Past SOS results can be found on the IRA SOS website.
The SOS is a cooperative effort of SUNY, the IRA Office, and ACT, working together with other offices and individuals at SUNY Cortland.
