Student Survey results

In February, the UNT Health Science Center conducted the 2009 Student Satisfaction Survey to gather students’ opinions of the Health Science Center’s academics, services, facilities and more. This year, 722 students took the survey—98 percent more than last year. The results show that 78 percent are satisfied with the quality of education and teaching at the Health Science Center, just short of the goal of 80 percent satisfaction in both areas. The results have been presented to the Executive Team and each dean is analyzing the results and developing specific approaches to address concerns raised in the survey.   This process will involve focus groups with students, faculty and staff to obtain a better understanding of student concerns.

As part of the UNTHSC Strategic Plan, the Health Science Center emphasizes ongoing improvement in the quality of the educational experience of our students.   Student satisfaction is one of our primary performance measures which are designed to help us understand the impact of our improvement efforts.  Some of the survey questions are used by departments and schools as measurements for their WEAVE strategic outcomes to help meet the requirements for the upcoming Southern Association of Colleges and Schools re-accreditation. This is the third year that the Health Science Center has conducted the Student Satisfaction Survey.

You can view the full survey -- including an executive summary and students’ comments—on the Office of Strategy and Measurement Web page. For more information, contact Marc Foster, research analyst, at ext. 0370.
