The Office of Institutional Research and Data Strategy conducts a variety of surveys on-campus with the intent of providing useful information on students and student engagement to university administrators and the university community. 

  • Stop-Out Surveys
  • National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE)
  • Student Experience Surveys

Please review our Survey Guide Best Practices for conducting internal surveys.  


In addition to conducting surveys internally, OIRDS responds to surveys from CollegeBoard and U.S. News & World Report. 


MGA now has an institutional license for Qualtrics:

  • Choose SSO and use your MGA credentials. Logging in the first time creates your account.
  • With this adoption we are sunsetting OIRDS support for Survey Monkey.
  • Resources can be found at Qualtrics XM Support and Qualtrics Topics from A to Z
  • Qualtrics supports robust reporting, nuanced layed analysis, and support for data visualization. 

Microsoft Forms may also be used for surveys (resources for Microsoft Forms).

  • MS Forms support reporting, basic analysis, and support for data visualization. 
  • Sometimes you may find it useful to responses to those with MGA credentials. MS Forms may be a better service in those instances.
