The Canadian Graduate & Professional Student Survey (CGPSS)

In conjunction with 40 other Canadian universities (including all U15 member institutions), Queen’s has administered the CGPSS several times, most recently in the Spring of 2017 and (as with NSSE) will do so annually throughout the strategic framework time horizon. Separate versions of the survey ask students in professional masters programs, research masters programs and doctoral programs across all years of study a range of questions about their graduate program including course and program content and focus, interactions with faculty, professional skill development, research and thesis/dissertation experiences, sources of financial support and other aspects of social and academic life. OIRP generates results for Queen’s at the program-level (where numbers permit) or broad discipline level that can be compared with results for Ontario, the U15 and Canada overall. The survey findings are the basis for two of the metrics in the Strategic Framework, and they are reviewed within the School of Graduate Studies and the Division of Student Affairs to inform policy and service development.
