2001 Post Graduation Survey Report

The information in this report covers students who graduated during the calendar year 2001. The University's Office of Institutional Research included questions about post-graduation status as part of their "Survey of Graduates-One Year Follow-Up," to May and July 2001 graduates a year after graduation. Our office was provided with the results of the initial mailing, and followed with a mailed survey to December 2001 graduates, as well as to those May and July 2001 graduates who had not responded to the Institutional Research survey. Graduates responded either by mail or electronically via a Web-based form.

The actual number of students graduating in 2001 was 1,103. Through the combined surveys of IR and CDC, the information was gathered on 498 students. This reflects a 44.1% response rate. Of those surveyed, 110 students indicated that they graduated with double majors. Those students have been counted in both major groups, which accounts for the total of 608 for "number contacted."
