UFV administers a number of surveys of its students, as well as surveys of faculty and alumni in order to better understand how it is achieving its goal of providing UFV students with the best undergraduate education in Canada.
An example of this kind of work is the UFV Applicant Survey Summary 2017. UFV surveys a subset of its applicants to examine their reasons for choosing UFV, their perceptions of the university and related issues, such as their educational goals.
UFV administers surveys designed by provincial, national and international organizations.
The key surveys include several surveys examining employment success of students after graduation (student outcome surveys), national surveys of student experience, and surveys of student and faculty perspectives on student engagement.
