Introduction

2015-2016 Graduation Survey Report Department of Career Planning and Development

Dear Kennesaw State University Faculty, Staff & Administration: Each semester, the KSU Department of Career Planning and Development assesses the postgraduation career status of our recent graduates at each graduation ceremony. The purpose of the survey is to provide the KSU community with a glimpse of the career paths of our students at the time of their graduation. We collect information regarding employment status, graduate school attendance, and experiential education participation. On the following pages, you will find the results for the 2015-2016 graduating class. The college reports are separated by departments and majors for ease of reading. Majors that were offered on the former SPSU campus have been combined with the appropriate major on the Kennesaw campus where applicable. Further, this year students were provided additional options for their post-graduation status, to be aligned with the choices on the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) First Destination Survey. As such, the choice of “Other� for the overwhelming majority of our majors has significantly decreased. We hope this information will encourage the KSU community to continue to support the efforts of the Department of Career Planning and Development, as well as assist in providing evidence for learning outcomes as designated by the various accrediting bodies. While this data is not a comprehensive First Destination report, it is a snapshot of the graduating class at the time of graduation. Thank you for taking the time to review the attached. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments. Sincerely,

Lori Trahan, PhD Associate Director Department of Career Planning and Development Kennesaw State University 470-578-6555 ltrahan@kennesaw.edu
