There are three Pulse Surveys planned for the Fall, 2021 semester. These surveys take approximately 1-3 minutes to complete and ask current students about well-being and a few special topics. The goal of the Pulse Surveys are to give quick and actionable information to leadership in order to address student needs. Results will be posted here when the surveys end. See below to explore the results from previous Pulse surveys.


We administered three Pulse Surveys to undergraduate and graduate students during the Spring 2021 semester.

Administered between the 2nd and 4th weeks of classes, 8,637 (29%) undergraduates and 3,396 (28%) graduate students completed the semester's first survey. Congratulations to our first prize winners of the random drawing for Apple AirPods: Shriniket Maddipatla (Undergraduate, Letters & Science), Lizbeth Cosio Vazquez (Undergraduate, Letters & Science) and Caroline Haber (Graduate student, Law).
