I want to conduct a survey. Where do I begin?

If you are an employee from an administrative unit, clinic, medical center department, or college wishing to administer a survey that solicits input from other members or prospective members of Augusta University at a super-set population level (e.g., all freshman students - not freshmen students in a particular class; same for faculty, staff, and alumni), you should obtain permission from your supervisor and the responsible senior leaders for the target population, then from IE.
