The University of Wyoming conducts three student surveys on a biennial basis. The Noel-Levitz (NL) Student Satisfaction Inventory is administered to roughly half the student sample, while another one-half completes the ACT Student Opinion Survey. A third survey, the University of Wyoming Student Opinion Survey (UWSOS), composed of items developed largely by Student Affairs and Academic Affairs, is administered to the entire student sample (nearly 1,500 respondents per survey year). In 2012, a total of 1,680 students responded.
The Noel-Levitz questionnaire first was administered in 1998, while the ACT survey first was first used by UW in 1994. Both the Noel-Levitz and the ACT surveys provide us with comparative results from national samples of public universities. The results have been examined by a committee of the University's Enrollment Management Council, and the following report is based on the results from 1994 to 2012.
