Most assessment at Purdue focuses on learning outcomes, but there are other important assessment targets. Student satisfaction with on-campus services is one of these. Student satisfaction is vital because satisfied students tend to be more successful. Students become satisfied by experiencing campus resources.

The 2013 Purdue Student Satisfaction Survey looked at 109 different campus programs, services, resources and facilities. Thirteen campus offices took part in the project. The survey shows high satisfaction with campus services. Nevertheless, there is room for improvement in every department and urgent need to improve student awareness of on-campus resources and opportunities. The student satisfaction survey report presents results for every question, disaggregation by gender, ethnicity, residency, class and general attitude, plus hundreds of candid student comments and suggestions.
