The Communications and Surveys team plays an important role in supporting the University’s strategic and operational planning. The team delivers high-quality student and staff surveys and conducts engagement activities to develop innovative solutions for information sharing across the Griffith community.


Surveys collect valuable information for quality assurance, planning and improvement initiatives. Griffith participates in nation-wide surveys, under the Quality Indicators of Learning and Teaching, which help students compare study experience and employment outcomes across Australian higher education institutions. These surveys cover the student lifecycle from commencement through to employment and are administered by the Social Research Centre on behalf of the Federal Government.

The QILT surveys include the Student Experience Survey, the Graduate Outcomes Survey, and the Employer Satisfaction Survey.

We also run a number of surveys that measure the student experience of courses, teaching, programs, and non-academic service areas of the University in partnership with Learning Futures, Office of Marketing and Communications, Griffith International and i-Graduate. Our team also oversees the administration of other staff and student surveys under the guidance of the University’s Surveying of Griffith Students and Staff Policy.

Information from our surveys provides valuable evidence to support the Plan-Implement-Review-Improve model, which underpins the University’s Framework for Quality Assurance.
