Graduate Climate Study

Commissioned by the Graduate School at The University of Texas at Austin, the 2017-18 Graduate Climate Study seeks to better understand the attitudes, opinions and experiences of students enrolled in both academic and professional master’s and doctoral programs. Ultimately, the data will help inform future decisions about how the Graduate School allocates resources to have the greatest impact on the graduate community and promote a productive, positive and equitable climate.

The study was conducted by Hanover Research in 2017, and in 2018 The Graduate School requested IRRIS summarize the results for the UT Austin community. Highlights of the study and dashboards detailing the results are available on the The Graduate School website.
