Student Surveys

CIAP conducts several surveys of the student population on a regular basis for administrative purposes. Internal surveys are typically developed by CIAP with input from various stakeholders and are administered to Memorial students. CIAP also administers smaller surveys based on requests, from university units. 

Memorial also participates in larger surveys at a national or international level that are developed and administered by third parties with CIAP serving as the co-ordinating un the administration.
