Data in the chart above come from the University of California Undergraduate Experience Survey (UCUES), which is conducted every two years.
Data from the 2008 survey show that undergraduate students are highly satisfied with their UC education and feel they have benefited greatly from it. The forthcoming Spring 2010 UCUES survey will provide data about whether UC been able to deliver a high-quality educational experience and maintain high levels of student satisfaction amid continuing cuts to its budget and academic programs.
