IT Services Customer Satisfaction Survey
Customer Service has always been a guiding principle for Information Technology. Since 1998, Dr. Chawla, Professor of Marketing, has graciously provided his expertise and a team of his talented marketing students to perform a customer satisfaction survey for Information Technology. The information gathered from these surveys is used to focus resources on services that are most important to our students.
