Alumni Surveys: We're Listening

Every year St. Thomas reaches out to alumni to get their perspective.  Sometimes we ask about how St. Thomas prepared you for your career.  Other times we ask about philanthropy or programs we could develop that would help you personally and professionally. Insights from the survey have resulted in actions, for example:

  • Improved career development services, especially for younger alumni
  • Changes in the content that we provide to all alumni
  • Revisions to the channels we use to communicate: email, social media or print

Which Survey?

This year, we are sending out three separate surveys.  Each alumna/alumnus will be asked to only complete one. All three surveys are described below.

Watch your inbox for an inviation to take your survey from "noreply@qualtrics-research.com" or "invites@mailer.surveygizmo.com."  Can't find the email?  Contact us using the links below.

We appreciate your help in completing these surveys before Dec. 31, 2020.

Class of 2020: First Destination Survey

As a recent graduate navigating the COVID-19 professional challenges, St. Thomas would greatly appreciate an update on your current employment pursuit, placement or graduate school plans so that we can continue to support you in your professional advancement. Your completion of the First Destination Survey will help us understand and support you and all the newest members of the Tommie Network.

Each year, the University of St. Thomas Career Development Center conducts the First Destination Survey to gain valuable information on career outcomes from our recent graduates. The survey results help students explore possible entry-level careers, internships, and postgraduate fields of study – and help St. Thomas improve career programming.

Class of 2010 and 2015: Take the NACM Survey

Alumni who earned their bachelor's degrees in 2010 or 2015 will receive a survey from the Career Leadership Collective called the National Alumni Career Mobility (NACM) survey. The results of this 10-minute survey will be compared to other institutions and provide insights about your unique career path so we can improve how St. Thomas prepares graduates for their future.

The survey is an opportunity for you to share what you have been up to since graduating from St. Thomas, how specific experiences have shaped your career, your success, your community engagement, and your level of satisfaction with your career path.

 

All Other Alumni: Take Alumni Attitude Survey

All other alumni will receive a survey that asks for your perspective on the direction of the university as we consider our 10-year plan.

From its beginning, the University of St. Thomas has been on a journey to educate and inspire future innovators and problem-solvers. As we move into the future, this survey will collect alumni attitudes about our current trajectory on a variety of topics:  mission, workplace-readiness, sustainability, DEI, athletics, etc.

Each alumna/alumnus has a unique vantage point, based on your time at St. Thomas, and how the university has moved forward since your graduation.  We look forward to your perspective!
