Subject: Your Voice Matters: Take the gradSERU

Dear [Student]:

The Graduate Student Experience in the Research University (gradSERU) survey is one of the most important tools that we have to assess the graduate and professional student experience.

Neither the University of Minnesota Graduate School nor your college/program will have access to identifiable response data. We take your feedback and responses seriously so that we can enhance programs and curricula, improve student services and policies, strengthen research and scholarship opportunities, and ensure a vibrant and supportive environment for all students.

Thank you for helping to ensure that the University provides a great experience for graduate and professional students.
