16 Indigenous Student Enrolments UVic s strategic plan outlines an objective to continue to increase the number of Indigenous students graduating from all faculties, building on the commitment to and unique relationship with the First Peoples of Canada. Increasing the recruitment and retention of Indigenous students is one of the key strategies. UVic has been successful in this strategy, as there has been a 70 percent increase in the number of Indigenous students registered at UVic since 2003/04.

17 Cooperative Education Participation in Co-operative Education Experiential learning is a distinguishing feature at the University of Victoria. This includes co-operative education which has the highest participation rate in western Canada and the greatest number of graduate student co-op placements in Canada. Co-op is mandatory for students in Business, Engineering, Health Information Science, Public Administration, Recreation and Health Education, and is optional for almost every other program. There were a total of 4,487 students participating in co-operative education programs in any term in 2012/13 across all Faculties 537 of those were graduate students /13 headcount of students in co-operative education in any term June 25,

18 The following chart illustrates undergraduate co-op participation rates by faculty and term. The School of Business and the Faculty of Engineering have mandatory co-op programs while some programs have mandatory practicum requirements instead of co-op (for example Nursing, Child & Youth Care, Social Work, and some Education programs). 2012/13 Undergraduate rate of participation in Co-operative Education by faculty and term Human & Social Dev.

20 Work Placements A key strategy outlined in UVic s Strategic Plan is to increase the number of co-op placements available to students. The number of work placements in Canada and other countries is illustrated below, by year. Since 2009/10, there has been a 9 percent increase in the total number of work placements for graduates and undergraduates. The highest percentage of work placements typically occur in the summer, but placements in the spring and fall are also well represented, as the chart below illustrates. Distribution of 2011/12 co-op placements by term Summer 2011, 43% Fall 2011, 25% Spring 2012, 33% June 25,

21 Vancouver Island was the primary destination for co-op work placements, with almost half of placements occurring there in 2011/12. Approximately 20 percent of placements were in another province, while 7 percent occurred outside Canada. The overall work placement rate for 2012/13 for the full year was 93.7 percent. The average monthly co-op work term salary for undergraduates and graduates was $2,869 in 2012/13. Graduate students average monthly salary was $3,481. June 25,

22 Evaluation of competencies gained during work terms In 2012 the Co-operative Education Program and Career Services implemented an on-line competency assessment module to help co-op students and employers assess students progress. Students were asked to evaluate their level of proficiency for a number of competencies before, during, and after their work term 3. For example, one of the competencies is Project and Task Management and consists of the ability to plan, implement, manage, and measure projects and tasks in a timely and directed manner. The overall results for students during the summer of 2012 showed that the level of accomplishment (purple sections in the graphs below) increased during their placement. Before their placements, 25 percent of students said that they had reached their goals and used opportunities to practice this competency, compared with 41 percent after the work term was completed. Reports are currently available by department, and future reporting capabilities will include results by Faculty. 3 June 25,

26 Neighborhood Family Income of BC Grade 12 Applicants and Registrants to UVic Statistics Canada data on median family income by neighborhood was used as a proxy for the distribution of household incomes of applicants and registrants 4. The socio-economic diversity of new registrants from the lowest income bands actually increased from 2001 onwards a reflection of UVic s bursary program introduced in 2001 that targeted those students with the greatest need. Neighborhood Family Income (2001 $ restated in constant $) $100,000 $90,000 $80,000 $70,000 $60,000 $50,000 $40,000 $30,000 $20,000 $10,000 $0 Neighborhood Family Income of BC Grade 12 Applicants and Registrants to UVic 10th Percentile Applicant 10th Percentile Registrant 20th Percentile Applicant 20th Percentile Registrant Median (50th pct) Applicant Median (50th pct) Registrant 80th Percentile Applicant 80th Percentile Registrant th Median 20th 10th Sources: UVic Student Information Systems; 2001 Statistics Canada Family Neighborhood Income; Consumer Price 4 June 25,

27 Student debt incurred and left to be repaid 2 years after graduation The graduating class of 2009 was surveyed in 2011 and reported that the average amount of total debt incurred during their studies was approximately $25,000. Just over 50 percent of respondents said that they had incurred debt. Two years after graduating, students said that an average of $15,000 had yet to be repaid. From earlier BGS surveys, it was determined that after five years, over a third of graduates with debt had repaid those loans in full. Those with debt after five years owed between $5,000 and $9,000.

35 National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) Evaluation of entire educational experience Objective 12 in UVic s strategic plan is: To ensure that our undergraduate and graduate programs of teaching and learning are of the highest quality, responsive to intellectual developments and student needs, inclusive, and organized around best practices in teaching and learning. The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) measures the extent to which students engage in effective educational practices that are empirically linked with learning, personal development, and other desired outcomes such as persistence, satisfaction, and graduation. The university has participated in four NSSE surveys since 2006 and detailed results can be found on the Institutional Planning and Analysis website. 5 In the latest administration of the survey, 86 percent of first year and 85 percent of fourth year students at UVic reported that their entire educational experience at UVic was excellent or good. Comparisons were made with eight other participating Canadian institutions where 79 of first year and 76 percent of fourth year students said it was excellent or good. 100% 80% 2012 National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) Evaluation of entire educational experience 12% 13% 17% 19% 60% 40% 54% 52% 52% 50% Poor Fair Good 20% 32% 33% 27% 25% Excellent 0% 1st Year 4th Year 1st Year 4th Year University of Victoria Canadian Universities 5 June 25,

36 NSSE results for the evaluation of students entire educational experience by faculty are as follows: Would go to the same institution if starting over Students at the University of Victoria also responded favorably to the question of whether they would go to the same university if they could start over again 89 percent of first year and 85 percent of fourth year students said they would definitely or probably return. A smaller percentage of students from the other eight participating Canadian universities responded favorably to this question 84 percent of first years and 75 percent of fourth year students National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) Would go to same institution if starting over 100% 80% 9% 12% 12% 17% 60% 40% 46% 45% 45% 43% Definitely no Probably no Probably yes 20% 42% 40% 39% 33% Definitely yes 0% 1st Year 4th Year 1st Year 4th Year University of Victoria Canadian Universities June 25,

37 NSSE results for whether students would choose to go to the same institution if starting over are as follows, by faculty: June 25,

38 Active and Collaborative Learning NSSE created benchmarks or indices of effective educational practices in order to summarize survey results for accountability purposes and to focus discussions on possible institutional improvements. The NSSE benchmark called Active and Collaborative Learning was created to reflect that students learn more when they are intensely involved in their education. Collaborating with others in solving problems prepares students for experiences during and after university. The benchmark or index was compiled using the following items asked in the student survey: Asked questions in class or contributed to class discussions Made a class presentation Worked with other students on projects during class Worked with classmates outside of class to prepare class assignments Tutored or taught other students (paid or voluntary) Participated in a community-based project (e.g., service learning) as part of a regular course Discussed ideas from your readings or classes with others outside of class (students, family members, co-workers, etc.) The graph below shows results from the four years the survey was administered at UVic. First year students typically rate this item lower than fourth year students. 50 Active and Collaborative Learning NSSE Benchmarks First year students Fourth year students Compared with the 2012 results for eight participating Canadian universities, the results for University of Victoria students were somewhat lower for this benchmark. The comparator group index results were 37.8 for first year and 46.6 for fourth year students. June 25,

39 The NSSE results for the benchmark or index called Active and Collaborative Learning are shown in the following chart, by faculty. For all faculties except the Faculty of Engineering, fourth year students were more likely to participate in active and collaborative learning activities and score higher on that index. The benchmark called Level of Academic Challenge was an index created to include questions related to how much the coursework emphasized analysis, synthesis of ideas, judgements, application of theories, working harder than expected, and how much the campus environment emphasized time studying and academic work. The average score for this benchmark overall was 51.1 for first year students and 55.4 for fourth year students. The results by faculty are shown below, and in all faculties except for the Faculty of Engineering, fourth year students were more likely to score higher on this index. June 25,

40 Survey of baccalaureate graduate students The Baccalaureate Graduates Survey (BGS) provides results from surveys conducted from the year 2000 onwards and the reports are available on BC Stats website for student outcomes. 6 Results are used for accountability, program reviews, and decision-making. A series of questions are asked each year of former university students either 2- or 5-years beyond their graduation date. One area of interest is the degree to which their program helped them to develop various skills. The graph below illustrates the responses to a number of questions from the 2011 two year-out survey relating to skill development.
