A person who wishes to administer a survey to students, faculty and staff, who do not enroll or work in that person’s office or school, must first obtain approval from the Office of the Provost. In addition, a person who receives e-mail or traditional mail addresses of individuals in schools or offices other than those who work for this person will be responsible for that information and must sign a statement, agreeing to adhere to NYU policies for handing data. The person must also agree not to provide these addresses to other offices or to reuse the addresses to administer other surveys without permission from the Office of the Provost.
To obtain permission from the Office of the Provost to distribute surveys to individuals outside one’s school or office, one must complete and send the survey administration form to the Office of Institutional Research and Program Evaluation with the following information: (Please allow 4 weeks for a response to your request.)
Acceptance of authorization to administer a survey establishes an obligation on the part of the individual(s) to use these data responsibly, including to not redistribute the data to others in or outside the University, unless the individual(s) is an authoritative source for and an authorized distributor of the data and the recipient(s) is authorized to receive the data. Moreover, the data are not allowed to be stored on computers or servers outside NYU, unless such storage is authorized and protected.
