Graduate Student Campus Climate Survey

Complete to win up to $50 in Amazon gift cards!

This survey, open to all graduate students and developed by the Graduate Student Senate Diversity and Inclusion Committee, seeks to gauge graduate student experience and perception of diversity and inclusion at Washington University.  The survey should take between 7 and 12 minutes to complete.  The information will be collected anonymously and used to support our Campus Climate Report that will be published in Fall 2017.  The report will summarize the responses to this survey and the feedback from the Graduate Student Diversity Forum, which was held on April 13, 2017.   We will also work with the administration and other graduate student groups to address the suggestions and issues brought up in these two events. Survey closes Sunday, May 7 at 11:59 p.m.

After you have finished, you will have the option to enter your wustl email to our lottery for a $25 and $50 gift card to Amazon.  However, your email will not be connected to your responses, which will remain anonymous.

If you have any questions, please email us at gss@wustl.edu.
