Qualtrics was selected in 2011 based on a growing need for a research survey tool that could be used by UND students, faculty and staff. The contract has remained with Qualtrics over the past eight years with incremental yearly cost increases. During this time, the North Dakota University System (NDUS) took on managing the Qualtrics contract and other campuses joined in.
Qualtrics has recently made a change in pricing for all higher education institutions. Costs for NDUS and UND have increased significantly. The increase will be effective Jan. 17, 2020. Due to the diverse and extensive use by faculty, staff and students, UND has committed to continuing with Qualtrics for a minimum of 18 months. Qualtrics will remain as UND’s survey tool from January 2020 through June 30, 2021.
During the next 18 months UND will conduct a review of Qualtrics usage and other survey tools that may meet our usage needs. There will be opportunities for you to provide your feedback throughout this process.
