Vanderbilt A&S Graduate Student Carrel Feedback
The purpose of this survey is to gather information from A&S graduate students regarding use, value and proposed transition of the graduate student carrels in Buttrick Hall. This survey is a collaborative A&S graduate student initiative with the goal of presenting accurate, useful data to the deans as part of the decision making process. Your response is greatly appreciated.

Is there another space on campus that offers you the services, access, and value that the Buttrick carrels do?
Clear selection
If the graduate student carrel were to move to the central library, as the library space currently is, how would this impact your graduate student experience? (academic life, TA/instructor responsibilities, accessibility, connection/collaboration with other students, mental health, etc.) *
Would you prefer to keep the graduate student carrels in Buttrick or move to the Central Library as the library space currently is? *
If there were another graduate student carrel space that provided at least the same services, access, value to you as the current one would you be interested in moving to that space? *
One of the reasons cited for the proposed move out of Buttrick is the lack of space for everyone to have a carrel. Are you open to collaboration with other graduate students to manage carrel use and assignment (communication to see who is using their reserved carrel, who may not be on campus a given semester or academic year, sharing carrels among colleagues etc) to ensure access by all graduate students who desire to use the space? *
