Results from the Graduate and Professional Student Survey (GPSS)
Lawrence and Edwards Campuses
Spring 2005

The Graduate and Professional Student Survey (GPSS) was designed to assess information on many facets of the graduate school experience, from financial support to postgraduate plans. The GPSS was developed by the AAU Data Exchange to be administered by member institutions with the intent that the data would be available for comparative analyses.

During Spring 2005, a link to the online GPSS survey was emailed to 4,803 Lawrence and Edwards campus degree-seeking graduate students, with a response rate of 30.4% or 1,461 valid responses.

A sample of survey findings include:

  • 71% of students rated the quality of their academic experience at KU as either Excellent or Very Good
  • 69% of students stated they would either Definitely or Probably select KU if they were to start their graduate career again
  • 66% of students rated the quality of their overall experience at KU as either Excellent or Very Good
  • 50% of students rated the quality of their student life experience at KU as either Excellent or Very Good

The complete report of all survey findings across both campuses can be accessed through the link in the table below. Links to shorter, 2-page summaries of survey highlights are available for KU overall as well as by academic unit. The table also contains links to the survey instrument and a report on survey response rates by academic unit.
