GSA COVID-19 Impact Survey
The COVID-19 Impact Survey for Fall 2020 is now closed.
Thank you to all graduate students who have completed the survey. A report of the results will be provided as soon as possible.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had major impacts on all individuals across the globe.
The Graduate Student Association – University of Waterloo (GSA-UW) understands that our fellow graduate students are facing significant challenges during this unprecedented time.
Our survey was made in collaboration with Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs (GSPA) to better identify and understand the experience, concerns, and issues that our grad community is facing due to the pandemic. It is part 2 of our COVID-19 Impact Survey that was issued in April 2020.
The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete and will be available until WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 2, 2020 at 4:00 PM.
