RISC Survey - Student Success Data and Findings
We are data driven in our pursuit of Student Success
In Spring of 2020, UAA launched the Revealing Institutional Strengths and Challenges (RISC) Survey with Percontor LLC research firm. In December 2020, the Office of Student Success presented the findings from the survey to the wider campus community and discussed the salient challenges and perspectives about the institution gleaned from the survey. Here you will find the recorded webinar, the published report, and the power point complete with data and findings.
