Take the University of California Graduate Student Experience Survey

Thursday, April 8, 2021 (All day)

All UC Davis graduate and professional students are invited to participate in the first-ever University of California Graduate Student Experience Survey (UCGSES).

The UCGSES is a chance for all graduate and professional students to share information about their UC Davis experience. The goals of the UCGSES include finding the factors that support or hinder student success, learning more about student financial considerations, and understanding the campus climate around equity and inclusion.

They survey will open on April 8, 2021 and a link will be sent directly to graduate students' UC Davis email addresses.

Your Opinion Counts

This is the first year we have asked students to complete the UCGSES. Your response to this survey will inform the campus response to COVID-19, initiatives to improve faculty advising and mentoring, and efforts to address racial injustice. The survey takes only 15-25 minutes to complete, but will help shape solutions for years to come. Please take the survey to tell us what works well and what needs to work better.

Complete the Survey and Win!

Each student who completes the survey will be entered into a weekly prize drawings, each with  gift cards valued between $25 and $200. At least five prizes will be drawn each week, and winners will be selected and notified at their UC Davis email address between now and the close of the survey. The sooner you complete the survey, the more chances you’ll have to win!
