Survey Activation for Qualtrics

In order to distribute a Qualtrics survey, the survey creator must request activation.  A request for survey activation is generated and sent to the IRB email inbox.  An IRB staff member will review the survey to determine if IRB review and approval is required.  It is very helpful if the survey creator leaves a note in the comments section about the purpose of the survey.  If the survey is part of a human subjects research project, please include the Protocol ID code and approval date.  Most requests are reviewed within 24-48 hours.  If you have an urgent request, please call the Office of Sponsored Programs at (920) 424-3215.
