Take Spring 2021 Pulse Survey #2

February 24, 2021

Dear Berkeley student,

Please take the second student pulse survey of the term. These confidential, one-minute pulse surveys capture your feedback so we can better support you. Complete Spring 2021 Pulse Survey #2 for a chance to win Apple AirPods. If you also took Pulse Survey #1, you’ll get an additional chance to win.

Spring 2021 Pulse Survey #2 is now open
This Pulse Survey asks about your spring break plans, academic dishonesty, and student support services. 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 Tuesday, March 9.

Take Spring 2021 Pulse Survey #2

Results from Spring 2021 Pulse Survey #1
The report from Pulse Survey #1 is now available and below are some findings:

  • Compared to Fall 2020, students are still requesting recordings of classes and needing private, quiet space. Need a private space? Book an individual workroom at the ASUC Student Union.
  • 57% of undergraduates and 45% of grad students are feeling Zoom burnout more than half the days or nearly every day. Beat pandemic fatigue and find your fun.
  • Some students still need equipment for remote learning. However, the Student Technology Equity Program (STEP) continues to offer free loaner laptops, Wi-Fi hotspots, or other peripherals (e.g. webcam, headphones, etc.) for students in need.
