Butler University Surveys
OIRA designs surveys for senior administration to uncover key insights for strategic decision-making and refines surveys created by others across campus to enhance the information discovery process. We also coordinate the administration of University surveys to avoid sampling fatigue, thus ensuring quality data. Finally, we distribute research results as appropriate, through reports, presentations, and/or community discussions; a selection of student surveys can be found below.
