A survey, for this purpose, is defined broadly as any means of data collection in which questions are presented to respondents in paper, oral (e.g., interview, focus group), or electronic (e.g., email, web) format.
Qualtrics is LCSC's supported survey tool for collecting data for academic, administrative, and research-related purposes. Qualtrics is available to all current LCSC faculty, staff, and students, when supervised by staff or faculty. Every LCSC community member with an active @lcsc.edu or @lcmail.lcsc.edu email account can sign up for a Qualtrics account for free.
Use of Qualtrics should adhere to the LCSC Survey Policy, as well as all federal, state, local and other applicable law; all LCSC rules and policies; and all applicable contracts and licenses.

**If you are surveying our LCSC community (prospective students, current students, alumni, faculty, staff, and administrators), you must submit your project (see the LCSC Survey Policy for more details). If you are surveying people that are not affiliated with the college, you do not need to submit your survey.
After you go through the above registration process and login to Qualtrics, in 1-2 business days, you will find a survey located in your Qualtrics account named LCSC Survey Bank - Copy to Use. In the survey are standardized questions the institution uses to directly compare numbers across campus. As the name implies, you must copy the survey to view it. You will then be able to copy questions from the campus-wide survey bank to any of your surveys. Instructions to do so can be found below. Of course, you may alter the questions as you see fit for your project, but keep in mind that the comparability of the results to other campus offices will be diminished after you do so.
LCSC community members engaging in survey research should familiarize themselves with LCSC Institutional Review Board policies.
