Introduction

2014-2015 Graduation Survey Report The Career Services Center

Dear Kennesaw State University Faculty, Staff & Administration: Each semester, the KSU Career Services Center assesses the post-graduation 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 survey each graduating class (Summer, Fall & Spring graduates) and collect information regarding employment status, graduate school attendance, and experiential education participation. The college reports are separated by departments and majors for ease of reading. This year we are also including majors from the Marietta campus. If there was a major offered at both campuses, the major report is being divided into the major report at the Kennesaw campus and the major report at the Marietta campus. We hope this information will encourage the KSU community to continue to support the Career Services Center’s efforts, 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 Career Services Center Kennesaw State University 470-578-6555 ltrahan@kennesaw.edu
