Important Update:

Starting Fall 2020, Office of Institutional Research will no longer be able to provide support for building surveys to individual researchers through Qualtrics.

The University of Toledo has acquired a site license for Qualtrics. All University of Toledo faculty, staff, and students can connect to Qualtrics using your UTAD credentials at this link:

For those members of our campus community who are not familiar with Qualtrics, an introductory video entitled "UT Qualtrics 101” can be found in the myUT portal under the Employee tab for staff and under the Faculty/Advisor tab for faculty, advisors, and students under training.  In addition, Qualtrics XM base camp has created 7 training videos available at this direct link

Our office will provide support to administrative offices in need of assistance with analysis of data and provide summary of results to senior administrators when confidentiality is necessary.

For more information, visit Support Services page.



The Office of Institutional Research is available to conduct surveys for departments, offices and organizations for administrative purposes. For assistance, check our support services.

Faculty and Staff conducting academic research should contact the IRB office.

As of June 1st 2020, the University of Toledo has a new Survey policy (pdf)  which applies to all Internal Surveys. 

Internal Survey Policy Rationale

Our Students, Faculty and Staff are often targets of numerous surveys administered by various administrative offices and faculty or students conducting research. While these surveys are very important for research and administrative purposes, poor coordination and oversampling of our University population creates frustration and causes survey fatigue. This erodes the survey response rate and consequently reduces validity of the results.

The university survey committee was re-established in 2016 to develop a process to coordinate all major surveys on campus. The survey committee consists of members from Institutional Research, the Provost office, Institutional Review Board, Government relations and Faculty.

Once a new process was established the committee decided in 2019 that a policy would help clarify the purpose and scope for this process to increase the response rates.

The survey committee has key members which can assist with survey design, survey administration and selecting small random samples to yield higher response rates.

If you would like to contact the survey committee, please send an email to the co-chairs:

Dr. Anne Fulkerson at and Dr. Alana Malik at
