As part of the University of Waterloo's commitment to continuous improvement, Institutional Analysis and Planning (IAP) is involved in the strategic administration, coordination, and use of surveys on campus.
IAP regularly coordinates and administers campus-wide surveys including:
- National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE)
- Canadian Graduate and Professional Student Survey (CGPSS)
- Canadian University Survey Consortium (CUSC)
- Ontario University Graduate Survey (OUGS)
- National College Health Assessment (NCHA-II)
Results are typically available by Faculty and Program. If you are interested in survey results, please send a request to IAP.
In addition, descriptive and summary reports for IAP-specific surveys, and those administered by other campus groups can be accessed via the survey links above or through IAP's Survey Repository.
IAP helps to coordinate surveys that are administered to a large segment of the Waterloo population. Surveys that are conducted for non-academic research purposes (this includes surveys defined in the Tri-Council Policy Statement (TCPS2) as quality assurance or assessment, administrative, program review, evaluation surveys etc.) are reviewed by IAP; those conducted for academic research purposes require ethics clearance through the Office of Research Ethics (ORE).
University stakeholders interested in conducting a survey at Waterloo should consult the Survey Administration Process Flow Chart and webpage to review Waterloo's survey process or contact IAP for more information.
