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)?  28,000

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

Do you employ professional tutors? For writing or content or both? How many? Which areas (e.g., statistics)  No professional tutors

Do you employ peer tutors? Same as above--are they grads or undergrads?  Yes, both undergraduate and graduate; about 30 tutors in content areas; we have tutors in other areas but most requested are in math, physics, chemistry, biology, statistics (psychology and other disciplines), accounting, economics, and finance

Do you have a separate writing center at your institution? Yes
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.?  Classroom and in-center study skills presentations

How are your tutoring sessions made: appointment, drop-in, etc.?  Both appointment and walk-in;  all the tutors do walk-in tutoring and approximately 1/2 of their work hours are scheduled for appointments

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



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