UMass Dartmouth has selected Qualtrics as our Internet survey tool. All Faculty and Staff have access to create and publish their own surveys. Students may also use Qualtrics under the direction of a Faculty or Staff member.

Access to Qualtrics is managed by the Office of Institutional Research and Assessment. Please contact Jonathan Bonilla to request access. Students must have a Faculty or Staff advisor request access on their behalf.
