In August 2019 U:SA conducted a poll among its affiliates to determine current trends in reporting structure among institutional licensees.

With 25 responses, well over the required response percentage to generate statistically valid data, we once again found a wide range in responses.

Variations in titles seem to make categorizing reporting trends virtually impossible. However, the 2019 titles remain virtually identical to results from the 2009 study – President, Chancellor, Senior Vice President, Executive Vice Chancellor, Vice President, Associate Vice President, Dean, Director, Associate Director, and Department Chair.

To the question “To Whom do you Report?” 60% of respondents indicated they report at or above the Associate Vice Presidential level and 40% report below the Vice Presidential level. The percent of station managers that report directly to one of the top institutional officers – President/Chancellor/Provost – rose from 14% to 20% of respondents.
