Clear guidelines are available to assist students who plan to conduct research projects that include student surveys.

Academic research projects including a survey component must be sponsored or endorsed by a Princeton faculty member. In considering these requests, the University must balance its desire to support appropriate campus research projects with the need to minimize the risk of disclosing personal student educational record information without student consent, and to safeguard students from potentially unlimited and un-prioritized solicitations for survey participation.
