Survey Research


The Office of Institutional Research and Assessment (OIRA) conducts local and national surveys on a regular basis.

We maintain a schedule of the large-scale surveys we administer on a regular basis (PDF), as well as a calendar of current and upcoming campus surveys.

If you are interested in creating or administering a campus-wide survey, view our Procedures for Administering Surveys (PDF) to learn about the requirements for conducting surveys on campus.

Administering Surveys

The goals of OIRA are to:

  1. Coordinate the administration of surveys to minimize overlap and duplication by maintaining a survey calendar.
  2. Provide support for survey development, administration, and analysis.
  3. Ensure that the information being sought is not already available in another form.

Those who wish to survey APU faculty, staff, or students must contact OIRA at for review.
