UC Graduate Alumni Survey

About the survey

The UC Graduate Alumni survey is collecting information from UC doctoral alumni regarding their experiences and achievements since earning their UC doctoral degree.  Along with the UC Berkeley doctoral alumni survey conducted last year, this effort will produce the first-ever UC systemwide doctoral alumni survey and provide a comprehensive view of this particularly accomplished group.  The data received from this survey will help inform policy and advance the discourse surrounding the impact and value of graduate education. 

All survey respondents are eligible to win one of six $250 Amazon.com gift cards and one $1,000 grand prize.  Winners are selected at random from among those who have completed and submitted the survey to date.

We are grateful to all the respondents for their participation in the survey.
