What are the survey prizes and when will winners be announced?

Week 1 prizes included AirPods and HydroFlask Bottles. Winners will be randomly selected each week from two categories: (1) students, and (2) faculty/staff. Participants completing the survey March 5-11, will be entered into the first weekly drawing. Participants completing the survey March 5-18, will be entered into the second weekly drawing. All participants who complete the survey will be entered to win the grand prize, two tickets to Disneyland. A total of two pairs of Disneyland tickets will be awarded with one pair given to a student and another to faculty/staff. The grand prize will be given after the close of the survey (March 29). Winners will be posted on and notified via email. Survey responses are not associated with email addresses.

Why am I receiving this survey and why is the entire campus surveyed instead of a sample?

All Students, Faculty, and Staff, are invited to provide feedback on campus administrative services to help the Division of Administration and Finance assess the effectiveness of these services. Inviting the entire campus maximizes the chances of getting large enough subsamples to create meaningful recommendations at the department level. Most importantly, it is important for our customers, the entire campus, to have an opportunity to voice their opinion, to provide input, and to have a chance to win a prize.

Which departments are being surveyed?

Faculty, Staff, and Students, will only receive the option to survey departments relevant to their group. 20 administrative service areas/departments are included in this survey:

Accounting Services and Financial Reporting (ASFR)
Accounts Payable and Travel
AFIT (Adminstrative Systems)
Campus Dining
Cashier's Office
Contracts, Procurement, E-Business
Custodial Services
Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S)
Facilities Maintenance (Service Center & Physical Plant)
Landscape Services
OC Choice Catering
Parking & Transportation Services
Planning, Design, and Construction
Resource Planning & Budget
Sponsored Programs
Student Financial Services (SFS)
Titan Shops
University Police
VP's Office of Administration & Finance

Are my responses confidential?

Yes. Individual responses are confidential. The survey administrator (in this case UC San Diego) is able to identify the respondent, but this information is not shared with us. It remains private.

How long will the survey take to complete?

Each service area/department should take approximately 2-3 minutes to complete. Your progress will be saved so you can complete the survey for other service areas/departments during different times. Save your original survey email from VP Danny Kim to re-enter the survey.

What if I can't finish it all at once?

If you cannot finish the survey all at once, you can return to it at a later time. Click the FINISH LATER button. Your responses and progress will be saved. Be sure to keep your original survey email to re-enter the survey. Once you hit SUBMIT SURVEY and your survey is submitted, you will not be able to re-enter the survey and make changes.

What should I do if I experience technical problems with the survey?

If you are having technical issues with the survey, do not submit your entire survey. Save your progress, then email to notify us of the problem.

How will the information be used?

Executive leadership and department managers will review the results to help identify opportunities for improvement. The results will be released and posted on the survey website to be transparent and show progress toward providing better service to customers.

Will the survey be given again?

Yes, the survey will be conducted annually for the next several years. This is the 3rd year.
