The Office of Institutional Research & Assessment conducts a regular cycle of national surveys as part of the university’s assessment program. These surveys provide information about our faculty, staff, and students’ attitudes, and perceptions of the Elon experience. If you are planning a survey with more than 300 prospective participants, please contact OIRA to coordinate and plan your institutional survey.
