CSULB Student Satisfaction 2002: Student/Faculty Connections & Satisfaction

One of the most important questions colleges and universities can ask students is whether they would re-enroll at the institution, given the opportunity to choose once again. In the CSULB Student Satisfaction Survey of 2002, students reported on how connected they feel to faculty. These responses were crosstabulated with the "would you re-enroll at CSULB" item. The findings below suggest the student/faculty connection is important for student satisfaction.

Tables below illustrate the relationships between willingness to re-enroll and the following:
