Surveys at VIU

Currently, the Office of University Planning and Analysis is unable to provide survey services. This page will be updated when resources are available.

To support decision-making at VIU, the Office of University Planning and Analysis (OUPA) administers large institutional surveys and coordinates a self-serve model for faculty and staff conducting non-academic survey research.

Survey respondents receiving a large number of survey invites can lead to respondents ignoring requests for participation, not seeing the value of their participation, or not completing the survey thoughtfully. Please consider alternative data collection methods, determine if the information already exists, and review the VIU Survey Schedule and Privacy Guidelines as part of your project planning process. For more information, refer to Survey Resources

To determine if a survey is an option, and where your survey may fit into the VIU survey framework, please refer to the VIU Survey Decision Tree. If you would like to conduct a survey using the self-serve model, please contact
