Miami provides a survey tool, Qualtrics, for use at no cost by Miami faculty, staff, and students. Users can create and distribute their own surveys and gather information in support of the university's educational mission and organizational goals. Qualtrics has been reviewed by Miami's security team and approved for conducting surveys at Miami.
The first three steps to getting started with Qualtrics are:
Creating An Account
Does Your Survey Require Approval?
Miami University is committed to ensure that all human subjects research is conducted in accordance with the basic ethical principles widely adopted by professional societies and as prescribed in federal regulations. The Institutional Review Board (IRB) and Research Compliance Office (RCO) at Miami are charged by the President of the University with oversight of human subjects research. The IRB or, if regulations allow, the RCO must approve of research methods through an application and review process prior to any contact with potential subjects.
For more information, visit the Research Compliance-IRB website.
