The Graduate Center utilizes multiple surveys as part of a data collection effort intended to inform institutional decisions. Student surveys broadly collect information on student experiences and employment plans. Faculty surveys provide opportunities for GC faculty to update their scholarship and highlight interdisciplinary work. Alumni surveys are key in maintaining relationships between the GC and our graduates. More information about our surveys can be found below.
The Graduate Center also participates in several external surveys and data collection efforts:
The CUNY Office of Institutional Research and Assessment (OIRA) completes required reports on behalf of the Graduate Center for the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), the New York State Education Department, and other mandated data collection programs.
