Surveys are widely recognized as an important means for collecting information that can maintain and assure educational quality, enhance institutional effectiveness, improve student and employee satisfaction, and contribute to general knowledge. In accordance with University-wide Survey Policy, administrative and research surveys meeting the following criteria must be coordinated through the University Survey Committee.
Research surveys that utilize the Human Participant Pool or other convenience sample and administrative surveys designed to solicit feedback from participants regarding a specific campus event are exempt from this process.
Those who wish to administer a university survey of staff, faculty, or students must submit a completed University Survey Proposal at least 30 days in advance of the desired launch date. If approved, the survey will be added to the University Survey Calendar maintained by Institutional Planning & Analysis.
Some surveys, such as those that utilize the Human Participant Pool or other convenience sample, and those that are designed to solicit feedback from participants regarding a specific campus event, are exempt from this process. Refer to the Scope section of the University Survey Policy to determine whether your survey meets any criteria for exemption.
