2019 Graduate Student Survey: Closed

 


 

What is the survey about?

The UCSC Graduate Student Survey has been conducted every other year since 2007.  Fifty-nine percent of graduate students participated in 2017!  

This survey focuses on different aspects of graduate student experience including faculty teaching and mentoring, program requirements, research opportunities, professional development workshops, campus climate, and TA training.

The main purpose of this survey is to provide graduate students with a unique formal opportunity to share their experiences and suggestions with campus decision makers.

For example, a report with a comprehensive analysis of graduate students’ training and experiences is provided to departments conducting a self-study for academic program review.  The Graduate Student Survey has also provided vital data for the Chancellor's Diversity Advisory Council that works on evaluating and improving the campus climate for diversity and inclusion for graduate students.

All currently-enrolled graduate students are invited to participate in this campus-wide effort.
