Campus Climate Surveys
Closed on Monday, November 24th, 2008**
students have been sent survey invitations and reminders
on their UAlbany e-mail accounts on October 28th and November
3rd or 5th. Faculty and staff have been sent invitations
on November 5th and will be sent reminders on November 10th
or 12th. If these e-mails are not in your inbox, you might
be able to find them in your junk mail or spam folders.
If you can't find the e-mails, or you do not have an active
UAlbany account, and still would like to take the survey,
you can access it by clicking on the appropriate survey

is my UAlbany ID?" Your UAlbany ID is the one
that starts with three or four zeroes; if you do not know
it, you can look
it up in MyUAlbany. Click on "Demographic Data"
under "Other Important Links" on the left hand
side of the screen. Your ID number will be near the top
of your screen.
the survey is anonymous, why did the e-mail have my name
and why do I need to log in?" Log-in is required to
ensure the validity of the survey data. The online system
we use to host the surveys keeps log-in information in
an entirely separate data set from the survey response
data. It is impossible to match the two data sets. Neither
your ID number nor any other identifying information will
be included in the survey data set. In this way, we ensure
that your survey responses are both valid and completely
there are two entirely separate databases: the first does
have names, IDs and e-mail addresses and is used exclusively
for delivering the invitation and reminder e-mails and
tracking responses (so that we only send reminders to
people who haven't finished yet). This first database
does not have any survey responses on it. This is done
so that only UAlbany students, faculty and staff can take
the survey, and so that no one can take it more than once.
When you take the survey, your responses are stored on
an entirely separate database. No identifying information
at all is stored on the database that contains the survey
responses -- no name, no ID, no e-mail address. Not only
that, there is no other possible way of linking the two

Why We Conduct
at Albany conducts a number of surveys of its students, faculty,
staff and alumni as part of its ongoing process of assessing
our performance, and identifying areas of institutional strength
as well as areas which require additional attention or policy
change. These range from comprehensive assessment surveys
of the undergraduate or graduate student experience, to quick,
short surveys on a particular topic (for example, most recently
the NY-Alert system survey in October, 2008).
