The collection of information from students on campus by the use of questionnaires, surveys and other collection techniques must have the prior written approval of a professor if conducted in connection with an academic program or the prior written approval of the senior associate dean of students for non-academic or student-initiated surveys. Normally, student-initiated questionnaires/surveys are conducted by a recognized student organization and related to the purpose of that group. When specific student groups (e.g., residence hall groups) are the focus of such surveys, whether academically or non-academically sponsored, the concurrent approval of the pertinent director or adviser is needed to avoid over-sampling such groups during any given time frame. In addition to these expectations, the university has a policy on conducting online surveys or using email to solicit survey participation at marquette.edu/onlinesurveys. Student groups or individuals planning to distribute a questionnaire or survey should contact the Office of Student Development, AMU, Room 121, for additional information.
