Bronco ID Survey - Your voice in the university community!

Hello Fellow Graduate Students,

One of the GSAC's major roles within the university is to advocate for graduate student needs. Because of our interest in making sure your needs are being met, we will be developing a number of short surveys (approx. 5 minutes) that we are asking you to complete.

This first survey requests information pertaining to your Bronco ID. Your participation will give us a much better idea of certain issues around Bronco ID usage. Your feedback is essential to enforcing positive change. Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete our survey!
