This is a very important, confidential survey about learning, living,
and working experiences of our students, faculty and staff. The
results will provide valuable insight about students’ experience at
UCSC, their perceptions of campus climate overall, and their views on
university actions to support diversity and equity. It takes about
20-30 minutes to complete.
Go to http://survey.ucsc.edu to log in.
There are great prizes for students who complete the survey: a $10,000
undergraduate scholarship, iPads, a 7-day meal plan for one quarter,
and $75 Flexi Dollar cards.
