Alumni Survey

From the Geoscience Department, Indiana University of Pennsylvania

Purpose

This survey was designed to gather feedback for both a five-year review and major curriculum revision.

Implementation

A survey is emailed out to all alumni every five years as part of our departmental review. It usually contains different questions each time.

Use of the Data

Alumni comments were shared with faculty designing our new curriculum and presented to outside reviewers as background for their visit. They were also included in our five year review document, but no quantitative data was collected.

Effectiveness

Only 15-20 alumni respond, so their comments are mostly anecdotal evidence of what they found most useful about our program.
