Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Career Outcomes Survey & why is it needed?

The Career Outcomes Survey collects the employment and continuing education activities of UVM's graduates.  This data assists the institution in identifying strengths and areas needing improvement by measuring progress on key initiatives regarding student career preparation. Our survey follows the National Association of Colleges and Employers' (NACE) First-Destination survey standards and protocols while specifically reflecting the unique aspects of UVM. The data collected informs the strategic plans across the University aimed to support alums and grads with the tools needed to succeed in whatever career they pursue.

Survey results can also inform & inspire prospective students! They can see where others before them have landed, gain ideas on what they might do with a degree in... and see the benefits from getting a degree from UVM.
