Survey assistance provided by Institutional Research
Institutional Research staff design, develop and administer administrative surveys at the university and division levels. We are unable to administer surveys for individual departments; however, we can provide advice and assistance with the development of departmental survey projects. We are not able to provide survey assistance for grant-funded projects, academic research or academic class projects.
For eligible administrative surveys, Institutional Research can help with survey design, distribution, data collection, data analysis, and/or reports. Please contact us at 512-245-2386 or firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
The Administrative Survey Calendar displays a current schedule of administrative surveys that have been reviewed and approved by the University Survey Committee. If you are planning to administer a survey to students, faculty, or staff, please consult this calendar to determine the best time that does not conflict with other scheduled surveys.
