Survey Request

by Tod Massa 9. March 2018 10:37


Earlier this year, the Council created an Ad Hoc Committee on Data and Policy.  The committee met on February 2 and adopted the following mission statement:

To develop a blueprint to guide the use of data and data systems maintained by SCHEV as strategic assets in transforming the lives of Virginians and the Commonwealth through higher education.  Through this blueprint, the Council shall:

  • Provide leadership to ensure that Council's data assets, including the Virginia Longitudinal Data System (VLDS), meet the ongoing needs of the Commonwealth, are used effectively to communicate with various audiences and are adequately funded and staffed.

  • Ensure that Council's data support the alignment among education, workforce, and human capital needs of the Commonwealth, and that the Council makes information on the alignment readily and easily available to the public.
  • Promote data governance and the protection of individual privacy as a fiduciary duty of the Council and its staff.
  • Ensure alignment with The Virginia Plan for Higher Education.

The State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) is in the process of assessing the usability of SCHEV data and if there are improvements we can make to how our data are used and communicated. This survey (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/schevdata) is expected to take approximately 5-10 minutes.  The Council hopes to receive significant input through this survey and I encourage broad dissemination of the survey link.  Responses should be submitted no later than March 30, 2018.  If you have any questions, please let me or Pam Currey (PamelaCurrey@schev.edu) know.

Thank you for your assistance.
