UC Undergraduate Experience Survey (UCUES)


All undergraduate students enrolled in the Spring semester.

Survey Overview

Administered from March until July of the Spring semester, the UC Undergraduate Experience Survey (UCUES) survey responses are matched with institutional data to provide a detailed portrait of students' background, academic and co-curricular activities, goals and aspirations, experiences with academic and administrative units, self-assessments of gains in academic and social skills, interactions with other students, engagement in community service and civic activities, perceived obstacles to academic success and many other topics. UCUES data are used for many institutional purposes, including providing undergraduate student input into academic program reviews. For more information, please see the UCUES FAQ.

Departmental Responses: Survey Results and Summary of Findings

UCUES results by major and department are reported each year to academic department chairs and deans. They are also considered as part of the Academic Program Review process, and a subset of the results is included in the program review data summaries. The Departmental Results and Summary reflect student satisfaction with aspects of their major and department experience, evaluating areas such as instruction by faculty and teaching assistants, academic advising, and the availability and quality of courses. The Departmental Results and Summary from the most recent UCUES administration can be found below in both pdf and excel format.
