Introduction

2016-2017 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 graduates. 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 2016-2017 graduating class. The college reports are separated by departments and majors for ease of reading. In at least one case, a major that was offered on the former SPSU campus has been combined with the appropriate major on the Kennesaw campus. Also, note that the data collection method changed mid-year—for the Summer and Fall ‘16 graduations, surveys were collected at the day of graduation. For the Spring ‘17 graduation, surveys were collected with the petition to graduate. 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 or at the time they petition to graduate. 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
