Do you have an OLLI survey that you have used to build your case for fundraising, etc.?

Ann Nikolai, OLLI at CSU Chico, Asks OLLI: Do you have an OLLI survey that you have used to build your case for fundraising, etc.?

We plan to survey our membership at CSU Chico to answer the question: “What does OLLI mean to you?” While there will be other data we also want to collect, we’re ultimately wanting to build themes, etc. for our case statement and we want to really dig down into the meaning of OLLI for our membership.

Do you have an OLLI survey that you are willing to share?

Please send copies of your survey to Ann Nikolai at CSU Chico and Anne Cardale at the OLLI National Resource Center. (The NRC will post these survey examples on the national website.)

Dee Aguilar, OLLI at University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Asks OLLI:

Do you have an OLLI membership survey to share? I am developing a membership survey and would like to see samples of surveys used by other OLLIs. I am not looking for a sample class or instructor evaluation survey, but rather a general member survey asking members  for their feedback/opinion on items such as where they heard about OLLI, price, membership added values, website use, what members value most, what would make OLLI better. If you have a survey to share, please email it to Kyle at the National Resource Center, kallen@usm.maine.edu.
