Commissioned Surveys

The Office of Strategic Planning and Institutional Effectiveness (OSPIE) administers surveys for various offices and departments throughout the University.  Surveys can be administered via paper or online to select groups or specific populations. Commissioned Surveys may be conducted for the purposes of survey research, evaluations or assessments.

Our office works with the requestor to assist in formulating key questions, study design, measurements, administration protocols, and instrumentation. OSPIE administers the survey, creates and maintains the database, performs statistical analyses and reports the results. Our office also provides consultation with any or all steps in this process.

OSPIE does NOT charge for Villanova staff time on any Commissioned Survey. We do, however, charge for reimbursement of all out of pocket expenses. Out of pocket expenses might include costs related to incentives, materials, postage, or external consultants.

If you would like to commission a survey through OSPIE, please fill out the OSPIE Project Request Form.

If you have any questions, please contact Kathleen Nazar, Director, Survey Research and Evaluation
