Introduction for Canadian University Survey Consortium (CUSC)
CUSC is a group of Canadian universities that conducts an annual satisfaction survey of students. The CUSC surveys produce data that allow participating institutions to assess their programs and services. Comparisons with other institutions are made to assist in these assessments. The goal is to better understand student experiences at university and to provide benchmarks across time. Since 1996, the survey has run on a three-year cycle, with different student populations targeted each year—all undergraduate students/middle-year undergraduate students, first-year undergraduate students, and graduating students. In the Spring 2018 semester, graduating undergraduate students will be surveyed.
