What do we know about Class of 2016 bachelor’s degree graduates: A Campus-wide First Destination Survey

The need and demand for evidence of success upon graduation has never been higher. Because of this need, UIC administered a campus-wide First Destination Survey to the Class of 2016 bachelor’s degree graduates. Graduates from eight undergraduate colleges were invited to participate in this initiative. The project is a joint partnership between Career Services, Student Affairs Assessment and the Office of Institutional Research. Come learn about this survey, findings, and insights, as well as participate in a discussion.

****************************************

The VPUA’s Office for Research on Student Success (ORSS) is pleased to announce the next installment of its campus lecture series, showcasing research being carried out across UIC to better understand and ultimately improve the success of UIC students. The ORSS Lecture Series on Student Success Research grew out of the UIC Student Success Initiative, and has the dual purpose of opening a cross-disciplinary dialogue among researchers employing different perspectives and approaches to answer related questions about student success at UIC, and putting that research into the hands of practitioners who can make use of it for the benefit of our students.

For questions, please contact Sue Farruggia, Assistant Vice Provost for Undergraduate Affairs, at spf@uic.edu.
