Surveys

Sept. 18, 2014: Inside Higher Ed's 2014 2014 Survey of College and University Admissions Officers explored the perspectives and opinions of campus admissions and enrollment leaders on a range of pressing issues. Download a copy of the survey report here.

The survey was conducted in conjunction with researchers from Gallup. Inside Higher Ed regularly surveys key higher ed professionals on a range of topics.

On Oct. 8 at 2 p.m. Eastern, Inside Higher Ed will present a free webinar to discuss the results of the survey. Sign up here.

The Inside Higher Ed survey of admissions directors was made possible in part by advertising from ELS Educational Services, Jenzabar, Liaison International, and Perceptive Software.
