Assessment, Accreditation and Strategic Planning

University Surveys

The Office of Assessment, Accreditation & Strategic Planning supports, provides consultation for, and helps administer surveys relevant to assessment, evaluation, retention, and the effectiveness and efficiency of university operations.

For all other surveys, including faculty and staff research, you can utilize your college’s or department’s SurveyMonkey tool or your individual Google Forms tool. Alternatively, you can request access to one of the licenses to Qualtrics the University pays for. This will be a shared license.

If you would like to email your survey directly to a specific population within WIU, for example, all students in a certain program or all civil service employees, please utilize this request form. Once approved, AIMS will send you the list of emails that you will then submit as part of your survey request.

To request access to the shared Qualtrics license or for other survey questions please email
