Survey and Qualtrics Support

Qualtrics is an easy-to-use online survey platform developed by Qualtrics Labs, Inc. and is available at no cost to affiliated Cal State East Bay students, faculty and staff. Qualtrics licensing supports research, teaching, and administration and combines exceptional ease of use with an advanced set of features. This program is designed to permit the creation of survey instruments, distribution of surveys, data storage and analysis.

Please note: IRB approval does not automatically grant the right to distribute surveys on campus.

Survey Research

CSUEB participates in a number of voluntary and mandatory surveys that are intended to collect data about its students, alumni, faculty and staff for administrative, planning, reporting, and faculty research purposes. In response to the University's ongoing commitment to accountability and to serving the needs of its campuses and wider community, there continues to be a strong need for these types of surveys.
