What is the survey about?

The UCSC Graduate Student Survey has been conducted every other year since 2007. All currently-enrolled graduate students are invited to participate in this campus-wide effort.

Forty-nine percent of graduate students participated in 2019!  

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.
