UHD Survey to Gather Perceptions of University

The University of Houston-Downtown has partnered with Stamats, a higher education research and consulting firm, to measure perceptions of the university among a variety of audiences. To that end, an e-mail survey will be sent out soon to gather thoughts and ideas of faculty, staff, alumni and current students.

An e-mail asking for participation in the survey will be sent from Sally Olinger (sally.olinger@stamats.com) with the subject line “UHD Survey – We Need Your Input.” UHD officials would like to assure employees that this is a legitimate e-mail. The opinions gathered from the survey will be used in UHD’s brand assessment analysis.

“Your opinions and feedback are very important to our success,” said Elisa Olsen, executive director of University Relations. “We encourage your participation and being a valuable part of this process.”
