UNC Conducting Image Survey

Every two years UNC surveys students, alumni and employees about perceptions of the university - from its strengths/weaknesses and unique personality, to its sense of community and approach to teaching and learning.

Those surveyed are randomly selected; only some people from each of these groups will receive a survey. If you receive the survey in your email, your input would be appreciated.

The survey only takes about 10 minutes to complete and your insight and those of other respondents help to shape how we describe, market and advance the university. If you have any questions about the survey, please email Director of Assessment Kim Black.
