Survey of Graduates and Leavers
The "Survey of Graduates and Leavers”, is included in the “University of Hawaii Measuring our Progress Report” (formerly the Institutional Effectiveness Report).
The purpose of the report is to gather information from graduates and leavers regarding the overall quality of their academic experience, the quality of the student’s overall experience, the quality of the academic programs offered, and the satisfaction level of the academic preparation they received. The students are also surveyed to ascertain if they are employed, attending school or involved in other activities. If they are employed they are asked if their primary job is directly related to their major field of study and how well did their education prepare them for their current primary job.
The survey has the following parameters:
  • The students surveyed were enrolled with 30 or more credits and were from the Fall, Spring or Summer semesters.
  • The students surveyed were degree-seeking students (this survey excludes unclassified and special enrollments).
  • The students surveyed were in good standing.
  • The students surveyed included graduates (including all certificates) in the respective academic year.
  The survey gathered information from the following four groups of students:
  • Career Tech Education (CTE) Graduates.
  • Career Tech Education (CTE) Leavers.
  • Liberal Arts Graduates.
  • Liberal Arts Leavers.
The survey was administered variously to graduating students at graduation rehearsals, at graduate exit interviews and by a series of mailings to the Liberal Arts graduates, Liberal Arts leavers, CTE graduates and CTE leavers.
