Faculty, staff, and students at the University of North Florida
Users of UNF's online survey tool must obtain the approval of the UNF Institutional Review Board for the Protection of Human Subjects (IRB) if the results of a survey given to UNF students, faculty, or staff will be published or presented publicly. Also, if a survey affiliated with the University is administered to an outside population, especially to a vulnerable population such as children or offenders, approval from the UNF IRB is required.
Surveys that collect information for internal administrative purposes do not need to be reviewed by the IRB. Examples of these include customer satisfaction surveys, employee climate surveys, and online forms used to collect information that will not be presented publicly.
The IRB at UNF has the fundamental charge of protecting the rights and welfare of human subjects in all studies and research carried out by University faculty, staff or students, conducted under the auspices of UNF. For more information on the required procedures and forms visit http://www.unf.edu/research/IRB.aspx
Faculty & Staff:
To create an account, UNF faculty and staff will click the "Online Survey Tool - Qualtrics" link in myWings. Faculty and staff can access Qualtrics going forward from this same location in myWings. If myWings is not available, faculty may access Qualtrics directly at http://www.unf.edu/survey. Faculty and staff will use their UNF ID and password to login.
Student accounts are created when the following steps have been completed:
- Have a faculty or staff sponsor (most likely this will be the instructor of a course requiring the research or the sponsor of an organization).
- Gain approval from UNF's Institutional Research Board (IRB). The IRB meets monthly, so students will need to allow ample time for gaining approval. After approval, the IRB will create the Qualtrics account and notified you when your account has been created.
- Register for training by calling (904) 620-1707 or e-mailing the Center for Professional Development and Training.
To login to Qualtrics, students will go to
