SURVEY: UCLA Environment and Sustainability Task Force Report Draft

The GSA Sustainable Resource Center asks you to take 1 minute to answer our survey which is designed to gather graduate student feedback on the UCLA Environment and Sustainability Task Force Draft Report. This important report outlines recommendations for both short term and long term sustainability at UCLA. The survey results will help us identify the recommendations from the report that graduate students support. Student input is very powerful!
