Graduate Placement Report


Survey Process

The Office of Career Services, in collaboration with academic departments, collects post-graduate plans from all Stevenson University students on an annual basis. The list of graduating students was obtained from the Office of Institutional Research and these numbers correspond with IPEDS data. The electronic survey, created using Survey Monkey, is launched one week before graduation. Additionally, new graduates were sent the link to the survey one, two, and three months after graduation. After that, professional staff and peer advisors from the Office of Career Services telephone students to personally obtain post-graduation information. This information is also retrieved from faculty and LinkedIn profiles. The complete survey for the 2015-2016 report closed six months after the end of May 2016. 

In 2015-2016, there were a total of 1110 graduates from Stevenson University, which also includes the School of Graduate and Professional Studies. Of those 1110 students, a total of 968 responded to the survey resulting in an 87% response rate

The following outcomes are standard as part of the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) First Destination Survey protocols.
