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)?

Public, private, 4- or 2-year?

Do you employ professional tutors? For writing or content or both? How many? Which areas (e.g., statistics)

Do you employ peer tutors? Same as above--are they grads or undergrads?

Do you have a separate writing center at your institution?
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.?

How are your tutoring sessions made: appointment, drop-in, etc.?

Are you located in Student Affairs or Academic Affairs?

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