The First Destination Report contains a university-wide overview as well as data on individual majors at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
The 2016 First Destination Survey was distributed by the Career Services Office to 764 undergraduate and graduate students who graduated
in December 2015 and May or Summer of 2016.
Each graduate received an email with a link to the survey and a paper copy of the survey by
regular mail in November of 2016. Two months later, in January 2017, each non-respondent was contacted again by email and regular mail.
Faculty, staff, advisors and academic departments were then contacted to obtain any available post-graduation information for non-respondents.
In addition to the mailings and faculty contact, follow-up phone calls and emails were made to non-respondents.
Social media tools (LinkedIn,
Facebook, and Google) were also used to retrieve graduate information.
This study is conducted annually by the Office of Career Services. Career Services staff provide services to undergraduates, graduate students, alumni and employers with the goal of finding meaningful employment for our graduates.
