  • Invitation to share your opinion: Survey of Online Student Engagement (SOSE) (Thursday, February 23, 2017)

    Take advantage of this opportunity to influence decisions that affect you!


    IRSC online-only students are urged to share their unique perspective by participating in the Survey of Online Student Engagement (SOSE). SOSE results provide valuable data about our online-only students and their experiences in the college and  help us better understand and meet their needs. The survey is anonymous. The project is part of the Center for Community College Student Engagement and the Program in Higher Education Leadership at The University of Texas at Austin.  IRSC is also administering a paper survey in selected face-to-face classes for our on-campus students.
