uog releases results of alumni survey
the university of guam office of development and alumni affairs and the office of academic assessment and institutional research have released the results of an alumni survey conducted in the 2014 spring semester. the purpose of the survey was to identify the employment status and work placement of our graduates, and the perceived usefulness of the degree and university education.
several samples of alumni surveys from other institutions were reviewed and used as a base template for designing the uog survey instrument. faculty, deans and senior management were consulted in the design of the instrument. the irb reviewed the proposed study and determined that it was exempt from further irb review.
