NACE First Destinations Surveys Team

Committee Charge: The First Destinations Survey team takes further action on the August 2012 NACE release of the statement on The Critical Importance of Institutional First Destination/Post Graduation Surveys, detailing NACE's position on first destination surveys: http://www.naceweb.org/s08152012/graduate-survey/. In particular, the team will continue the work of the 2012-13 committee to implement the goals outlined in the statement, including the following:

  • - Develop a core set of questions for the destination surveys
  • - Identify the appropriate time frame to collect data in order to achieve institutional comparability
  • - Suggest response rate "requirements" for assessing survey validity
  • - Establish definitions for standard measures such as "percent of full-time employment."
