College Surveys

College surveys are an important part of institutional-level assessment of student learning and institutional effectiveness. One-year-out alumni career outcomes studies (classes: 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015), and five-year-out alumni survey (class of 2006) provide job placement & graduate school attendance information by Major. Additionally, NSSE & HEDS Senior Survey provide benchmarking data on student satisfaction with quality of course instruction, major advising, faculty research, level of academic challenge, learning outcomes, and career placement reported near graduation.
