Redeemer University College earned an “A” in Overall Student Satisfaction in The Globe & Mail newspaper’s University Report Card, released on October 16. The newspaper’s sixth annual survey of student satisfaction, produced in partnership with The Strategic Counsel, graded 53 universities on a number of key criteria by surveying 43,222 Canadian university students about their experiences. This was Redeemer’s first year participating in the survey; it was in the category of universities defined as having enrolments less than 4000. In the survey, Redeemer scored high marks in a variety of core areas. The results are encouraging since the information comes from the people who really matter – the students – and it is a testimony to the academic work and student development at the University. “It is important that Redeemer delivers the kind of experience that students appreciate and from which they can grow not only academically, but also personally and spiritually,” said Dr. Justin Cooper, President of Redeemer University College. “We are extremely pleased to be showing such strong progress in the key areas of academic life and of student satisfaction.” Redeemer is also committed to enhancing those areas which were identified as needing improvement. “We will continue working to better each student’s experience. Listening to our students is key!” President Cooper said. The 2007 survey is a strong endorsement of Redeemer as a vibrant part of post secondary education in Canada. Celebrating its 25th year, Redeemer’s mission is to prepare students for lives of leadership and service in a community where the Lordship of Jesus Christ is reflected and where students learn to “Discover All Things in Him.” The Report Card was divided into a number of different categories.
