Qualtrics is available for York College faculty, staff and students for use in conducting a wide range of online forms and surveys, including research surveys across the York College Community. Please be advised that all scientific research at York College that involves human participants will need IRB approval. (You can find more information about York College's IRB process at: https://www.ycp.edu/about-us/offices-and-departments/institutional-research/institutional-review-board/) While the LTS Department oversees Qualtrics, it is the responsibility of the researcher, be it faculty, staff or student, to follow proper IRB procedures and guidelines.
