WE reader survey provides invaluable feedback
November 20, 2023 |
The results are in and readers of the With Excellence (WE) magazine gave the publication 4 out of 5 stars for overall satisfaction
Upon distribution of the spring 2023 edition, the District Communications and Public Relations Department, in partnership with the Office of Institutional Research and Effectiveness, conducted a reader survey. The purpose of the survey was to gather feedback from readers to help guide story topic development and collect data regarding engagement with the magazine.
In total, 242 people responded to the survey, which was shared districtwide and to community partners via email and through a QR code in the printed magazine.
Among the findings, the survey results revealed that readers rely on the WE to stay connected to campus programs and events, and to learn about faculty and student achievements. This theme was evident among both multiple-choice items and open-ended responses, with respondents indicating they were particularly interested in stories about student and faculty groups, art installations at the campuses, and academic departments.
At the same time, only about half of survey respondents agreed that they felt represented by the magazine; survey data is currently under further analysis to identify areas for improvement in order to help diversify coverage and make it more inclusive.
The CPR Department thanks those who participated in the survey and appreciates your interest in the publication. If you are a first-time reader, we look forward to sharing with you stories from around the District.
