Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

Take the Undergraduate Experience Survey

UCUES is administered every 2 years, and students evaluate a myriad of topics—from academic majors to skills to participation in clubs to basic needs and more. This year UCUES introduces an advising module and questions about generative AI. Moreover, UCD students will see a summer sessions module. UCUES helps us gauge underrepresented communities’ experiences and the campus climate for diversity and inclusion. Understanding differing and shifting perceptions is vital right now, and we need a robust survey response to read these important areas.
