Questionnaire: Graduate Student Parent Community

May 1, 2018

Dear Graduate Students,

We are committed to strengthening community and fostering a family-friendly climate for graduate students. Please take the time to share your input with us through the following questionnaire. Your input is critical to how we shape and improve graduate student parent support.

We would like to learn more about how current graduate student parents are using the support available, about the number of graduate students who are parents, and importantly, about the priorities you have regarding family-friendly support. Improvements we have initiated over the past two years have been driven by student input (such as a new parental relief policy and the creation of the Graduate Community Fellows program).

With your help and input, we hope to direct our efforts to advocate for and improve support for graduate student parents and their families.  

If you have additional input, don’t hesitate to be in touch with us.
