North Carolina State University
2000 Sophomore Student Survey:
- NC State conducted its annual survey of sophomore students during the spring 2000 semester. Over seventy-two percent (72.2%) of eligible sophomores responded and the margin of error for the results is very low (+1%) at the 95% confidence level.
- Nearly 90 percent of respondents said that NC State is satisfying their goals for intellectual growth. Two-thirds rated the intellectual environment as strong or very strong, and 86.8 percent rated the overall education they were getting at NC State as good or excellent.
- NC State's contribution to respondents' growth in technical and analytic skills was rated more positively than its contribution to their growth in communication skills and a broad world view.
- Over 80 percent of respondents gave positive ("excellent" and "good") ratings to the overall quality of instruction at NC State and to faculty members' expectations for student learning. Only 63% gave positive ratings to the extent to which faculty show they care about students academic success.
- One-third of the African American respondents, compared to just 4 percent of whites, disagreed with the statement that NC State is committed to helping minorities succeed. African American respondents were also twice as likely as whites to disagree with the statement that NC State leadership fosters diversity on campus (45.7% vs 22.3%). White respondents were twice as likely as African Americans to say the campus is very supportive of African Americans at NC State.
