The Institutional Survey Administration REG01.30.01 (informally the Survey Regulation) was first issued on October 19, 2011 to define a regulation for administration of surveys at East Carolina University. The purpose of this regulation is to minimize survey fatigue
due to such factors as survey volume and redundancy, to maximize response rates
and survey quality and to ensure privacy and protection of humans in research
by providing a central clearinghouse for internal survey administration.
To implement this regulation the Survey Review and Oversight Committee was formed to review and approve surveys administered to faculty, students, staff or alumni on University property and/or using University resources.
