Class Climate

To assist faculty, staff, and students with research and data collection, the University maintains a contract with Class Climate to provide a free online survey tool to all USA faculty, staff, and students.

Class Climate is the University software system used to administer a variety of surveys which include student evaluations of teaching, alumni surveys, exit surveys and surveys related to accreditation and program review.  It offers a variety of administration options which include paper and electronic as well as flexibility of questionnaire design.

Class Climate is managed by the Office of Institutional Effectiveness and the Computer Services Center. If you need assistance with Class Climate and/or survey support, contact the Office of Institutional Effectiveness via email: or phone:  (251) 460-6447.
