Our very own talented and intrepid NAGPS liaison Kate Allison has lead a pioneering effort to survey graduate students on the satisfaction and engagement they experience in their graduate programs. This survey is being piloted here in the CU system and with the School of Mines, and will soon spread throughout the Western states and the rest of the country.
