Survey Research

CSUEB participates in a number of voluntary and mandatory surveys that are intended to collect data about its students, alumni, faculty and staff for administrative, planning, reporting, and faculty research purposes. In response to the University's ongoing commitment to accountability and to serving the needs of its campuses and wider community, there continues to be a strong need for these types of surveys.
