Survey of Plans after Graduation

Each spring, the UIS Career Development Center surveys students who will be graduating that year to collect information regarding their future plans and the extent to which the Career Development Center helped them achieve their career goals. Students who are participating in commencement are asked to complete the survey when they purchase their cap and gown on campus. Those students not participating in commencement or who choose to purchase their cap and gown online are sent an e-mail asking for their participating in the web-based survey administration. In FY09, approximately one-third of all graduating baccalaureate-level students participated in the survey, as did slightly more than one-quarter of all graduating masters and doctoral-level students.
