The HERI Faculty Survey

The HERI Faculty Survey is designed to provide colleges and universities with timely information about the attitudes, experiences, concerns, job satisfaction, workload, teaching practices, and professional activities of collegiate faculty and administrators. Information resulting from the survey can be used to facilitate self-study and accreditation activities; inform campus planning and policy analysis; enhance faculty development programs; and improve students’ educational experiences. 

The 2004-2005 Faculty Survey was the ninth national survey of faculty conducted by HERI —the sixth in a triennial series initiated in 1989. Since 1989, over 300,000 faculty at more than 1,100 two-year and four-year colleges nationwide have participated in this research.
