The collection of information from students on campus by the use of questionnaires, surveys and other collection techniques must have the prior written approval of a professor if conducted in connection with an academic program or the prior written approval of the senior associate dean of students for non-academic or student-initiated surveys. Normally, student-initiated questionnaires/surveys are conducted by a recognized student organization and related to the purpose of that group. When specific student groups (e.g., residence hall groups) are the focus of such surveys, whether academically or non-academically sponsored, the concurrent approval of the pertinent director or adviser is needed to avoid over-sampling such groups during any given time frame. In addition to these expectations, the university has a policy on conducting online surveys or using email to solicit survey participation at marquette.edu/onlinesurveys. Student groups or individuals planning to distribute a questionnaire or survey should contact the Office of Student Development, AMU, Room 121, for additional information.
All policies on this website are current as of February 2015 and supersede any previous iterations of the policies.
