Three Month Senior Survey Follow-Up
Each semester prior to the commencement ceremony the campus surveys graduating seniors to collect information about post-graduation career plans. Then three months after graduation we reach out to those graduates who had not found employment or made continuing education plans at time of graduation. This information helps us to better understand the career pathways of our graduating seniors--as they help inform decisions about resources, program improvements, and trends. Some of the aggregated information is used to measure our success as noted on the SUNY Report Card, and will be available in various reporting formats.
Who will receive the survey?
All Spring 2013 graduates who submitted their Spring 2013 application for undergraduate degree by April 8, 2013, responded to the initial survey and indicated that they were seeking employment and had not yet accepted a job offer, OR intended to continue their education but had not yet been accepted for 2013-14.
Why should I participate?
Responses help shape the focus of our improvement efforts and provide us with information that is not otherwise available to us.
Will there be repercussions based upon how I respond?
Individual responses are confidential and used only to create aggregated responses. The confidentiality of responses is protected by federal laws that prohibit usage of the information beyond basic statistical analysis.
Will the survey take a long time to complete?
The survey takes less than three minutes to complete.
