The next administration of the HERI Faculty Survey will take place in 2016-2017. Registration will open in early 2016.
Your faculty are essential to the main educational mission at your institution. Given their importance, it is vital to monitor aspects of their experience.
The HERI Faculty Survey provides institutions with a comprehensive, research-based picture of key aspects of the faculty experience. Since 1989 over 1,100 two-and four- year institutions have used results from this survey to connect faculty practices, values and priorities to institutional success and drive improvement efforts.
The HERI Faculty Survey is designed to provide institutions with actionable information on important and timely issues. It includes topics such as pedagogical practices, faculty goals and expectations for students, research and service activities, sources of stress and satisfaction, and the connection between learning in the classroom and practices in the local and global community.
Results from the HERI Faculty Survey have been used in strategic planning, faculty recruitment and retention, faculty development activities, assessment and accreditation, and discussions relating pedagogy to student learning experiences.
The HERI Faculty Survey includes:
You will receive an institutional profile, which includes institutional results broken out by sex and comparisons with other similar institutions. Separate reports in the institutional profile detail findings for full-time, part-time and graduate faculty separately. Institutions also receive a data file of your faculty responses, a PowerPoint Presentation summarizing results, and a monograph of the national results.
The HERI Faculty Survey is a web-based survey. It is administered triennially to faculty at two- and four-year colleges.
Each institution selects its own sample. The HERI Faculty Survey is meant to be used with all faculty, be they full- or part-time, graduate faculty, or administrators with teaching responsibilities. Each institution has the ability to customize the survey for their administration. Additional important details regarding specific customization options can be found in the Forms and Documents section below.
Because the HERI Faculty Survey is comprehensive, it gathers information on a wide variety of issues relevant to faculty. Below are documents organized by topic that allow you to easily find items to the survey that may be of particular relevance on campus.

Upon registration, institutions are sent one bill for the participation fee. After each institution completes their survey administration and returns the data for processing, the per-survey processing fees are calculated and a second bill is sent to each institution for their respective processing charges. Institutions are also billed separately for any Data Service Orders they may place, and these bills are sent out after the completion and fulfillment of each Data Service Order.
You may cancel without penalty up to the time that the unique survey links have been sent to your institution, or distributed per your institution's direction. If the survey links have already been sent to your institution or distributed via HERI's email distribution service to your intended survey participants, you will be charged a withdrawal fee of $100. In addition, if HERI has provided any customized services at your request (e.g., additional questions, etc), you will also be responsible for the full cost of these services.
