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.
