Surveys are a widely used tool to gather information about our students and alumni. They provide us with useful information such as the level of student satisfaction with the university's services and facilities, the employment history of our graduates and the level of student engagement at our institution. The role of IRP in survey administration is three-fold:

  • We regularly conduct our own surveys and take part in a number of others along with partner institutions across the country.
  • On request, we can produce samples or “guest lists” for employees planning to conduct a survey among uOttawa students. By generating distinct samples for different groups who happen to be conducting a survey during the same period, we help minimize duplication. If you need a list of the University’s professors or administrative employees, please complete the request-for-information form available through Human Resources. For a list of uOttawa graduates, please contact the Alumni Relations Office at or at 613-562-5857.
  • Also on request, we can examine and, then, suggest how to improve questionnaires that other services use to survey students, professors, staff or alumni. If the survey content closely reflects one of the University’s central research interests, Institutional Planning and Research can offer to play a more direct role in the project.   

To request a questionnaire assessment or a student list, contact us at or at 613-562-5954.

Use the menu on the left to access public reports on the main surveys we’re involved in at the moment. In addition, the FluidSurveys Software section describes the survey tool available to uOttawa staff, and the Winners section lists the winners of past draws.
