Cycle History

St. Lawrence participates in ongoing survey research - some surveys are conducted on an annual cycle, others on a 3-5 year cycle (e.g. research practices, IT, NSSE).  Several surveys are in-house instruments.  Others are national instruments which are typically supplemented with a few local questions of interest.  Also, St. Lawrence alternates between survey instruments (such as our own CSQ and the YFCY survey), as each pursues a particular emphasis.
