We regularly invite various segments of the campus community to participate in surveys addressing a wide range of issues.

If you are considering running a survey on campus, we are eager to work with you. Specifically, we can:

  • Provide guidelines and best practices in designing your survey
  • Assist with using Qualtrics, our campus survey tool
  • Provide targeted mailing lists from the campus database
  • Archive your data
  • Assist with data analysis and reporting
