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

What are your post-graduation plans?

How does KSU determine “success” in relation to graduating students? Does success equal students finding employment upon graduation, a certain overall grade point average, or a student’s desire to attend graduate school? Many universities tout “placement rates” as the primary measure of success, but what does this mean for students who plan to continue within academia, or for students who choose opportunities other than employment or graduate school? At KSU, “success” means that our students are able to follow any path they may choose, whether that next step is employment in their field of choice, pursuit of further education, or any other goal they may define for themselves. The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) compiles national first-destination data for students, allowing for students to define their career paths is a variety of ways. As such, we have changed our Employed categories to the following:  Employed FT in field of choice  Employed PT in field of choice  Self-employed  Post-graduate internship  Volunteer/Service organization (e.g. Military, Peace Corps)  Employed FT NOT in field of choice  Employed PT NOT in field of choice

“Other / Not Seeking Employment” In previous years, the “Other” category often included students who reported being self-employed, or participating in a post-graduate internship. This year, “Other” is more narrowly defined, leading to a significant decrease in the number of students answering “Other” on the survey Total students who have listed Other / Not Seeking Employment: 64 % of total students completing survey: 1.5%

Did you participate in Experiential Learning / Education?

Participation in “practical work outside the classroom” has been defined as broadly as possible on KSU’s graduation questionnaire. Although KSU hosts a formal Cooperative Education and Internship program, as well as student teaching, nursing clinicals, and a myriad of work-related practica, many students informally seek experience within their chosen career field. Providing a broad definition of “practical work” allows us to include KSU students who participate in formal practical experience as well as those who pursue valuable, yet informal, experiential opportunities.
