Institutional survey schedule

The Office of Institutional Research maintains a schedule of major surveys that are scheduled for future deployment. If you are planning to conduct an institution-wide survey, please consult this schedule so that you can most effectively plan the timing of your survey. If multiple surveys are being distributed to the same population at the same time, the response rate will typically be lower for all surveys. 

Please note that the survey schedule is a work in progress. If you have any surveys planned that we can add to the schedule, or any changes to the existing schedule, please contact Lee Allard at


Survey policies and procedures

There are no strict policies regulating the use of surveys at Daemen University. However, for some general recommendations about survey use and deployment, please reference the Survey Guidelines document. 

For anyone who is relatively new to the survey process, we have created the Survey Development Guide to help lead you through some basic steps in survey creation and deployment. 


National Survey of Student Engagement

The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) is a nationally normed survey which measures student engagement participation in academic and co-curricular behaviors. Daemen College participates in the NSSE survey every three years, most recently in spring 2019. For an executive summary of results, provided by the NSSE organization, click here

The next deployment of the NSSE Survey will be in spring 2022. The survey will be sent out to all first-year and senior students in March 2022. A summary of results should be ready by summer 2022.
