10.05 Surveys and Disseminating Information

The ASCCC or its committees or task forces may conduct surveys for a number of reasons, including but not limited to the following:

  • Local Academic Senate Profile (conducted every 2 years)
  • Addressing Resolutions
  • Gathering information for Senate papers, presentations, sessions
  • Evaluation of events
  • Requirement of a grant

Survey instruments are created by the ASCCC or its committees or task forces. The survey instruments must be approved by the ASCCC Executive Committee before being conducted unless the survey is necessary for a grant requirement. In such cases, the surveys will be generated by the grant and approved by the ASCCC president and executive director. A standardized type of format or report for survey results will be used.

Survey results may be disseminated by a variety of means, including but not limited to the following:

  • Use of the “Surveys” ASCCC webpage
  • Rostrum articles
  • Senate papers
  • ASCCC Weekly Newsletter
  • ASCCC listservs
  • Presentations and discussions at plenary sessions, institutes, and other events.

Privacy Concerns

The ASCCC strives to preserve anonymity in survey data and findings that are reported; however, the names and colleges of respondents are collected in the event that further information or clarification is needed.
