CSU Organizational Excellence


Campus Functional Area Customer Satisfaction Surveys Administration Process

The Chancellor's Office Organizational Excellence department is once again offering campuses the ability to participate in the systemwide customer satisfaction surveys. Your campus may administer as many surveys as you like at no cost. We have made improvements to our tools and have standardized to streamline our process as follows:

  • We procured a new survey tool that will streamline administration and analysis.
  • We went through existing surveys and standardized the wording; therefore no question or wording changes can be made. This will enable us to create comparison reports. We can modify department names, example: Career Center, Counseling Center, Career Education.
  • You can “hide” or not ask any of the questions.
  • 5 custom questions can be added to the end of each survey.
  • The Chancellor’s Office will deploy and administer all surveys using the new tool.
  • Simplified standard reports will be created.

Administration Window: March 28 - May 31, 2016
