Subject: Quick poll about department structure

Good morning everyone-

I am one of many who are putting together a strategic assessment report
and am addressing a section on department structure. Since you are the
very best source of this kind of information, could you take two minutes
to answer the following:

What is your total enrollment (just an estimate)? At the School of
Engineering, approx. 5000 undergrad and grad.

Public, private, 4- or 2-year? 4 year private

Do you employ professional tutors? For writing or content or both? How
many? Which areas (e.g., statistics) Yes, only in writing.  I have 7.

Do you employ peer tutors? Same as above--are they grads or undergrads?
Yes, in subject areas.  I have 31 undergrads.

Do you have a separate writing center at your institution? No, the writing
center is part of the tutoring center.  There is a separate writing center
for Expository Writing, which is a two-semester freshman comp course.
If not, how much of your business is writing?

What other instructional initiatives does your department facilitate or
manage: classroom workshops, a coaching/mentoring program, SI, etc.?  We
have mid-term and final review sessions in the subject areas for core
courses.  We have an English conversation program for non-native speakers
of English.

How are your tutoring sessions made: appointment, drop-in, etc.? Subject
tutoring is drop-in; writing consultations are by appointment.

Are you located in Student Affairs or Academic Affairs?  Academic affairs.


Thanks so much and good luck to everyone working on these reports!
