The UC Santa Cruz Graduate Student Survey is now open and will run through Spring quarter! IRAPS holds this survey every two years, and prepares reports with results for department self-study, including for academic program review, containing aggregate results and suggestions. Students can start the survey by going to: gradsurvey.ucsc.edu.
The survey is a way for graduate students campus-wide to give confidential feedback and suggestions on program curriculum, teaching, mentoring, resources, and climate. This year's survey has multiple places to provide suggestions about academic training, campus services, student well-being, and work as a TA, GSR, or GSI.
Also, in appreciation of students' time and to increase interest in participating, there are drawings for gift cards ($25 to $200) accepted at many downtown Santa Cruz restaurants and shops, plus gift cards for other stores and online retailers.
