Long-Term Alumni Surveys

Long-term alumni surveys are conducted five or more years after graduation and are administered once per accreditation cycle (every seven to ten years). The survey collects alumni outcomes data such as employment status, graduate or professional school attendance, and involvement in volunteer work. It also gives alumni the opportunity to provide feedback on their learning and experiences at Evergreen.
