Quality of Life Survey

Make your voice heard! Responding to our Quality of Life Survey is an effective way to express your satisfactions and dissatisfactions to the administration. Survey highlights are presented to Provost Coatsworth as well as Dean Alonso and other members of GSAS administration. Survey data is accessible to the public (see below for reports).

Other than helping us improve our school, you could be randomly selected to receive an Amazon gift card.

The survey is overseen by the Quality of Life Chair and sent out to GSAS MA and PhD students as well as PhD students in other departments throughout the university each year.

We welcome comments and suggestions for how the survey can better measure the Columbia GSAS graduate student experience.

The Quality of Life Survey is now closed. We will announce when it becomes available again (each year usually on February/March). Thank you for contributing on this important matter!
