Planning & Analysis Highlights
All incoming undergraduate students attend the Golden Bear Orientation (GBO). The report on survey findings from the January 2021 GBO is now available. This January GBO is unique in that it was entirely remote.
Spring 2020 UCUES results are now available via an interactive dashboard that allows for filtering by several student characteristics: entry status as a freshman or transfer, student level, first generation college status, Pell recipient status, socioeconomic status, race/ethnicity, gender, and residency status. You can also view a curated set of UCUES results in the Student Experience dashboard on the Our Berkeley data digest site.
For general information about this survey, please see the UCUES page on our website.
The Fall 2020 Survey of New Students results from freshmen, transfer, Fall Program for Freshmen (FPF) students are now available. Administered at the beginning of the Fall semester, SONS collects information on previous academic experiences, interests and first impressions of Berkeley. This year's SONS also collected information on new students' experiences with COVID-19 and remote learning.
