The Office of Institutional Research has launched a new web page to help faculty and staff conduct surveys to collect the data they need for analysis and decision-making.
The new Survey Committee web page includes a calendar of major surveys scheduled for the University community. A newly developed survey request form also is available on the website.
To coordinate the implementation of surveys at the University, faculty, staff and students are urged to use the form to request the launch of any survey to be administered to 500 persons or more. Note that surveys that are meant to gather data in support of faculty research agendas are not required to use the form.
The use of this new form will allow the Survey Committee to coordinate major surveys at the University, as it addresses issues related to strategic timing of the release of major surveys to encourage more responses while decreasing survey fatigue.
Members of the Survey Committee include representatives from the Office of Institutional Research; Information Technology; the Office of Diversity and Inclusion; the Division of Student Affairs; the Office of the Provost; the Institutional Review Board; faculty representatives; and other members of the University community. A list of committee members is available on the Survey Committee website.
The Office of Institutional Research and members of the Survey Committee are available to help with the deployment and analysis of large surveys. For assistance, send an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For additional information, contact Dr. Brigitte Norton-Odenthal, interim director of institutional research, at email@example.com or Dr. Barbara Schneider, associate vice provost at firstname.lastname@example.org. Norton-Odenthal and Schneider are co-chairs of the UT Survey Committee.
