Input on education sought through grad student survey
Asked to assess overall experience
Graduate students have the chance to weigh in on the state of their education through a survey that launches on March 2.
“By participating, students have a collective voice that can help shape both their program and other graduate programs at the University of Manitoba,” said Vice-Provost (Graduate Education) & Dean, Faculty of Graduate Studies, Jay Doering.
The Canadian Graduate and Professional Student Survey is emailed to grad students and responses can be submitted through to March 30.
“It helps give us a sense of what we’re doing well and where we need to focus on,” said Doering.
Grad students will be asked to assess their overall experience and to evaluate program-specific and department-specific experiences, along with questions related to advisors and supervisors and university-wide aspects of their educational experience.
The U of M has also participated in the survey in the past, most recently in 2013.
“Ensuring students have an excellent experience is of utmost importance,” said Doering. “The survey gives students influence on decisions on a go-forward basis.”
