Dear Berkeley student,

As many of you return to in-person classes, we invite you to take the first student pulse survey of the term. These confidential, one-minute pulse surveys capture your feedback so we can better support you. Complete Fall 2021 Pulse Survey #1 for a chance to win a $100 gift card of your choice.

Fall 2021 Pulse Survey #1 is now open
This Pulse Survey asks about your well-being and hybrid learning as you start a new term. A link to the Pulse Survey is below and appears as a task in CalCentral. These surveys are confidential and results will be displayed only in aggregate. The survey closes on Wednesday, September 29.

Take Fall 2021 Pulse Survey #1

Results from Spring 2021 Pulse Survey #3
The report from Pulse Survey #3 is now available and below are some findings:

  • Our last survey from April 2021 showed a strong willingness to vaccinate among the student body. We are pleased to report that 97 percent of undergraduates and 97 percent of graduate students have successfully complied with the vaccine policy.
  • We continue to track student mental health. We saw a slight improvement in Spring 2021 compared to Fall 2020 as well as some semesterly variability. However, students, especially undergraduate students, are clearly still struggling with symptoms of depression and anxiety. If you need support, mental health resources are available

If you have any questions or problems with the Pulse Survey, please contact ucbsurveys@berkeley.edu.
