On November 15 University of Minnesota and CSHE ran the SERU Graduate Student Experience Workshop at UC Berkeley. Participants discussed practical learning and insights from the gradSERU Survey. Current and prospective members of the Consortium had an opportunity to network with leaders in graduate education research and administration from around the world, get more information on the gradSERU instrument and discuss questions regarding SERU membership.
The HSE Institute of Education and the University of California – Berkeley (USA) have signed a memorandum to jointly administer an international Student Experience in the Research University (SERU) Consortium until 2020. The memorandum calls for the two universities to implement a major four-year project on higher education studies involving over 30 universities from various countries.
