Cooperative Institutional Research Program (CIRP)
Cooperative Institutional Research Program (CIRP) is designed to obtain a wide range of demographic data as well as information on freshmen’s high school background, career plans, educational aspirations, financial concerns, and attitudes on social issues. While many questionnaire items remain constant over time, the survey is revised annually to reflect the needs of the academic and educational research communities.

National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE)
National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) obtains information about student participation in programs and activities that Adelphi provides for their learning and personal development. The results are intended to assist Adelphi in assessing the extent to which their students engage in a variety of educational practices that are empirically linked to positive learning and development outcomes.
Student Experience Survey (SES)
Student Experience Survey (SES) provides information on students use and satisfaction with services, facilities, and the college environment, as well as their experiences at Adelphi, their opinions of the faculty, academic programs, course scheduling, and extracurricular activities.
Your First College Year (YFCY)
Your First College Year (YFCY) survey is designed to help institutions evaluate and improve the experiences of first-year students. Moreover, when the YFCY is used in conjunction with the CIRP, a comparative longitudinal assessment of first-year students at both the beginning and end of their freshman year can be undertaken.
Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE)
Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE) is designed to measure faculty expectations of student engagement in educational practices that are empirically linked with high levels of learning and development. Faculty members are asked questions on a variety of educational topics that mimic the questions students are asked in NSSE. The survey also collects information about how faculty members spend their time related to professorial activities and the kinds of learning experiences their institution emphasizes.
Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) Faculty Survey
Higher Education Research Institute (HERI) Faculty Survey is designed to collect basic data on college and university faculty, including background and demographic information, attitudes and values, pedagogy, and professional activities.
Non-Faculty Employee Satisfaction Survey
This University-designed survey was administered for the first time in fall 2010. The survey asks employees (full-time and part-time who work a minimum of 25 hours) about various aspects of their work at Adelphi such as environment, professional development, and knowledge of Adelphi's policies, mission, and Strategic Plan. Respondents were also asked to indicate their level of satisfaction with the overall environment at Adelphi, including but not limited to benefits, work space, job security, sense of community, and safety.
Alumni Survey is designed to find out what happens to Adelphi’s alumni, particularly with respect to their employment and further education; to help evaluate existing programs and services; and to assess the extent to which Adelphi is meeting its strategic planning goals.
Recent Graduate Survey (RGS)
Recent Graduate Survey (RGS) has several objectives; among them, to determine what happens to Adelphi’s recent graduates after graduation, especially with respect to their employment, further education, and personal and professional achievements; to help evaluate existing programs and services; and to provide its individual schools with data on student outcomes.
Survey of Leavers
Survey of Leavers investigated leavers who transferred to other institutions, as well as those who left Adelphi and did not transfer. Parallel comparisons are made among students still enrolled, leavers and transfers.
