The UND Placement Survey was developed in 1997 through the partnership of Career Services and Institutional Research for the purpose of collecting demographic and employment information on recent University of North Dakota graduates. Over the years the use of this information has expanded and is now being used for university assessment purposes, provided to academic colleges, various offices and service areas across campus, and used for a number of internal and external questions regarding job placement and salary data.
