2014 Alumni Survey Results Posted; 2015 Survey Underway

Sunday, May 03, 2015

The Watson College is pleased to share results of the 2014 WCE Alumni Survey. The survey is designed to gauge the impacts and effectiveness of programs offered at the college, and the career success and workplace achievements of alumni.

Tamara Walser, director of assessment and evaluation and associate professor at the Watson College, administers the survey, which was introduced in 2013 as part of the continuous improvement work of the college. Questions are based on a conceptual framework adopted by the college in fall 2012.

Work on the 2015 survey is underway. The survey is sent via email each year to students who have earned a degree or licensure one, three or five years prior from the Watson College. This year the survey will be sent to individuals who earned an undergraduate or graduate degree or licensure from the college in 2009-10, 2011-12 or 2013-14.

Walser says the survey is important to the work of the college. "We hope our alumni will look for an email containing a link to the survey, and take the time to respond," she said.
