Hey fellow UBC grad students,
Just like last year, you received emails about the GSS Harassment and Discrimination Survey starting November 1st, 2017. This survey will be open until November 30th and it is intended to identify issues that grad students face at UBC particularly in the areas of harassment and discrimination. This can range from issues in your TA position, issues with your supervisor or other graduate students. This completely anonymous survey will be used to inform the GSS Ad Hoc Committee on Harassment and Discrimination on the development of policies and recommendations to put forth to UBC. Even if you do not feel that you have observed or experienced harassment or discrimination (GREAT!) your input is valued. There are also sections covering student experiences regarding the topics of expectations, safety and stress, that many students could identify with. Currently UBC is focusing on policy changes regarding sexual assault and supervisory excellence. The data collected here will help make concrete arguments of why certain changes could improve graduate student experiences, which in turn will be beneficial to the university as well!
