UC Berkeley is committed to fostering a campus community where everyone belongs and can thrive and realize their full potential.

Your responses to the My Experience survey will help shape the Berkeley experience for current and future undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, staff and faculty members, and administrators. 

What is the My Experience survey? 

A confidential survey to capture the experiences and concerns you have of campus and workplace climate. It is available to everyone on campus – undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, staff, faculty, and administrators

Designed by and for the UC Berkeley community, this survey will provide data to assess the experiences people have on campus and inform policies and platforms for change at the campus, department, office, program, and classroom levels.

Why should I take the survey?

Your participation will inform the campus about where to invest resources toward meeting the Chancellor’s priorities to build community; enhance the student, staff, and faculty experience; and increase diversity. It will also inform strategic planning and the direction of campus policies and opportunities.
