Survey Management at McGill University

In the interest of avoiding survey saturation and in an effort to maximize the use of University resources, PIA is responsible for providing expertise in coordinating survey efforts.

It is important to note that student survey projects require approval from the Deputy Provost (Student Life and Learning). PIA provides guidance on survey administration. We can advise about all aspects of survey administration including:

  • Survey methodology
  • Population identification and sampling
  • Survey administration (PIA collaborates with IT services for mass e-mail surveys)
  • Design and/or review of survey questionnaires
  • Use of LimeSurvey (the web-based survey tool for McGill members)

If you are interested in surveying McGill students, or if you would like to know more about how we administer surveys at McGill, please contact us at surveys.pia [at] mcgill.ca or (514) 398-7158.
