Quality of Life Survey

Deadline Monday, March 25
Win one of ten $50 Amazon vouchers or one worth $150
ASGC’s annual Quality of Life survey gives us a chance to hear from students first-hand about the quality of life issues that are most relevant to their experience at Columbia.

Moreover, it allows graduate students to express their views on important matters related to their studies, ranging from academic policies to health insurance to recent union developments. 
The survey’s results serve as the foundation for our advocacy work in the coming semesters, and are our main means of leverage when advocating for policy changes and liaising with the GSAS administration.

Please take the time to fill it in and forward to a colleague: it only takes about 10-15 minutes, and the greater our sample, the better able we are to advocate for changes on behalf of the graduate student body. 

All answers are confidential, and in the end you will be offered the option to enter a prize draw for
one of ten Amazon vouchers worth $50, and one worth $150.
The survey is open to both MA and PhD students in GSAS.

ASGC is composed of MA & PhD students from GSAS departments and is the main successor of the Graduate Student Advisory Council (GSAC). All affiliate departments are encouraged to designate a Department Representative to participate in plenary meetings. Department Representatives vote on ASGC initiatives and policy changes as well as serve as liaisons between their departments and ASGC.

Please reach out to your current Department Representative to discuss matters you would like to see ASGC raise or, if the position is vacant, consider becoming a representative yourself.
