Survey for College Access Nonprofits

Posted by Columbia University on February 19, 2018

Survey on performance measurement

Teachers College at Columbia University seeks education nonprofits that (1) include immigrants in their service population and (2) provide college access and success support for students to answer a 10-minute survey about how they incorporate performance measurement in their programs. Staff who work directly with students should complete the frontline staff survey, and program leaders or mangers should complete the senior-level manager survey. Participation requirements and survey distribution information are available here. Respond by February 28.

Frontline Work, Frontline Staff, and the Educational NPO: Critically Tracing Organizational Prescription and Staff Appropriation

Samples must meet three requirements:
1. Be an educational nonprofit with programmatic ‘intervention/s’ – Have an education-related focus (ie school persistence, school retention, school entrance, academic elements/curriculum, etc.)
2. Include immigrant students in their students-served population (directly or indirectly — no specifics necessary)
3. Have a college-access component in their programming/intervention

There are two surveys being distributed:
1. Survey for frontline staff, defined (by this study) as those most outward-facing and closest to and/or in contact with students/client/intervention group –
closest to population being served (ie Programs Coordinators, Programs Associates, Programs Managers, etc).

2. Survey for senior level staff, defined (by this study) as those who 1) have direct report/s and 2) have stake in measuring and/or reviewing staff performance (ie
Directors, Senior Level Managers, etc).
