Clark University also got the very sobering and confirming news about the new pricing model earlier this week. They fully intend on marching us to an annual license fee that is 200% higher than what we currently pay. It appears that the new licensing model is an "all-in" model vs. the current a-la-carte model (i.e., you get Salesforce integration whether you want/need it). Clark will also be looking to see what other options are available to us in this market. FWIW - if you decide to engage with Qualtrics around the price increase, make sure they have the correct student FTE number for your institution since they are using student FTE to price and it is not clear where they are getting these initial numbers from - the number they had for Clark was off by 20%.
