Welcome new faculty!

The Survey Research Centre at the University of Waterloo has been offering faculty a full range of rigorous, academic and institutional survey research services since 1999:

  • Survey methodology and sampling frame consultation, questionnaire design, survey programming, data collection (telephone, web, mail, and mixed mode surveys), sampling weights and topline data analysis. These for-fee services are offered at cost-recovery pricing. We would be happy to provide a free quote for your research project.
  • A free one-hour consultation for UWaterloo faculty, staff and graduate students to discuss survey methodology or to review survey design.
  • If you are applying for a specific research grant,  we offer research grant application help through a new pilot program with the Office of Research. This program is provided at no cost to the researcher. The program has limited space and researchers will be considered for the program on a first-come, first-served basis, with priority given to early career/first-time research grant applicants.

Our location within the University of Waterloo provides us with a unique opportunity to employ exceptional, engaged undergraduate and graduate students to conduct primary research in our call centre.  

Please contact Lindsey Webster at lwebster@uwaterloo.ca to discuss your research project or fill out our study checklist.

Partnership with Institutional Analysis & Planning

The Survey Research Centre has partnered with Institutional Analysis & Planning (IAP) to develop and administer several campus-wide surveys to students, alumni, faculty, and staff.

The Student Experience Survey, the first survey administered through this partnership, aims to understand students' perceptions of their academic and non-academic learning environments and their experience at the University of Waterloo. These topics are explored through questions engaging students in subject matter about their general well-being, perceived efficacy of various instructional modalities and learning supports, and opinions on various strategic initiatives.
