The Canadian University Survey Consortium (CUSC) survey is an annual survey with a focus on student satisfaction. In 2014, 28 institutions took part, administering an online questionnaire to a random sample of middle-years students at each school. More than 22,500 students responded for an overall response rate of 30 per cent.

Below are four questions that reflect how students feel about their professors and how comfortable they feel at their university. Responses are ordered according to the percentage who chose the highest level of satisfaction, “Strongly Agree.”
