Survey Research Center

Welcome to HPU’s Survey Research Center

The High Point University Survey Research Center (SRC) conducts high quality public affairs and social science research using a variety of qualitative and quantitative methods. Student work and ideas are at the core of the SRC’s approach to pursuing interdisciplinary research projects and communicating its findings to the public. The SRC’s High Point University Poll surveys people in North Carolina and beyond about crucial public affairs issues and reports the results as a public service. The Center also supports faculty and student professional development by managing and consulting on collaborative student-faculty research projects.

The Survey Research Center is based in the Nido R. Qubein School of Communication building on High Point University’s campus. All together the Center has 42 stations equipped with Sensus and WinCati systems. Martin J. Kifer is the Center’s Director and Brian McDonald is its Assistant Director. If you have questions about the Center, you can contact us at 336-841-9333 or
