Your First College Year Survey (YFCY)
For over 15 years, IWU has participated in the Cooperative Institutional Research
Program (CIRP), developed and administered by the Higher Education Research Institute
(HERI) at the University of California-Los Angeles (UCLA).
Your First College Year (YFCY) survey, administered at the end of students' first
year, asks numerous questions about their experiences and interactions and allows
direct comparison to answers given to selected questions from the Freshman Survey.
This comparison allows faculty and staff to see what changes, if any, have occurred
during students' crucial first-year at IWU. IWU's YFCY results can also be compared
to those of students at other participating 4-year colleges.
For more information on IWU's participation in the CIRP, contact Dr. Michael D. Thompson,
Associate Vice President for Institutional Research, Planning, and Evaluation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
