Every spring, PIU invites students to give feedback on their academic and social experiences at the university. This year, we used three surveys designed by Ruffalo Noel Levitz (RNL): the Student Satisfaction Inventory (SSI) for main campus students, the Priorities Survey for Online Learners (PSOL), and the Institutional Priorities Survey (IPS) for faculty and staff.
