The results for the GSA Return to Campus survey are in. A total of 1,104 responses were recorded, representing 15% of the UCalgary graduate student population. Thanks everyone for participating in this important survey.
Survey results indicate that the respondents are divided about returning to campus: 47% of respondents are comfortable and 46% are uncomfortable.
When asked if they believe that the university is ready to have all students and employees return to campus, 46.05% think that the university is not ready to have all students and employees back to campus this Fall, 18.38% is unsure, and the rest (35.56%) believe that the university is ready.
Overwhelmingly, respondents want flexibility in course delivery so that they could access the course material online when they feel uncomfortable attending in-person classes/study or when they are ill and need to isolate.

The GSA will be using this survey information to support our advocacy efforts with the UCalgary to ensure a safe and smooth return for UCalgary graduate students.
