Survey Policy

The University of Lethbridge will coordinate surveys on campus in order to ensure meaningful and reliable results.

University applicants, students, faculty, staff, former students, and alumni are increasingly being asked to participate in surveys to gather data for administrative, planning, and reporting purposes. This increasing need for surveys is a result of the growing desire, internally and externally, to understand student and/or employee experiences and to measure outcomes. Surveys need to be well designed and administered in an efficient manner. This includes ensuring that surveys are timed to avoid survey fatigue, by not overburdening a target population. Further, surveys that are not well coordinated may represent an inefficient use of university resources.
