|UND seeks input from regional community|
The University has launched an extensive series of surveys designed to assess the regional community's interest in credit and non-credit programming offered by the University. Survey results will be used by UND to strategically plan for future offerings, including new credit courses and non-credit workshops, events or activities.
The second in a series of five surveys focuses on assessing the regional community's need for general interest courses, activities and events. All individuals in all age groups within a 100-mile radius of Grand Forks are asked to complete the 10-minute survey. Participants will be asked to give input on their need for courses, activities and events that are of interest to them or their families, such as youth camps, cultural activities or sporting events.
We encourage the entire community to participate as the data obtained through this process will be used by numerous UND units as they prepare and implement their strategic plans over the next several years, said Galen Cariveau, director of UND's Workforce Development Program, the unit responsible for administering the assessments.
Future interest surveys are planned to assess the medical community, the retired community, and the UND student body. The first survey focused on the business community. The general interest survey will be administered through Aug. 30 and will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Participants can opt to take the survey online or request a paper copy. For more information or to participate in the community general interest survey, contact UND at 777-2098 (Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.).
