There are several guiding principles that provide a foundation for all survey projects conducted by The Office of Institutional Research:
- Any findings based on survey data are aggregated and reported in a manner that does not identify individuals.
- Surveys are completely voluntary and respondents may choose to skip questions they are not inclined to answer.
- Princeton University surveys are typically confidential, and information collected during administration greatly assists the planning processes behind many university services and programs offered to students, faculty, and staff.
- Survey responses are typically linked to an individual's Princeton ID number so that accurate comparisons can be made to future surveys.
