About the UWM Survey Instrument

UWM’s enterprise Survey Instrument is available to all UWM faculty, staff and students with an active ePanther ID and password. The Web-based Survey Instrument allows the campus community to create and distribute surveys, collect and store data, and produce reports. Use of the software is free.

The software is powered by Qualtrics, a nationally-respected survey instrument software company. Survey creation and distribution, data collection and storage, and reporting are hosted by Qualtrics.

To ensure security of survey data, the UWM Information Security Office has reviewed the process and procedures for the capture and storage of data. They have determined that the security and privacy provided is fully compliant with the UWM Security Policy. This is the only survey software that is pre-approved meeting IRB privacy requirements.

Qualtrics was chosen as a result of the Survey Instrument project which included requirements gathering, analysis, creation of an RFP and final vendor selection. For more information about the project, visit
