First Destination Survey

At UIS, we are using The Outcomes Survey powered by GradLeaders to conduct our First Destination Survey to gain knowledge about what activities students are engaging in after graduation from college.

Graduating students will receive emails from the Career Development Center through The Outcomes Survey platform starting in the weeks immediately preceding their graduation date asking for the survey to be completed.  Graduates can update their survey response for up to a year after graduation, and graduates will receive periodic reminders about the opportunity to update their survey response. Additionally, graduating students and recent graduates can request a link to complete the survey below.
