Purpose and Description of this study
This is an alumni survey of the Augustana graduation classes of 1999, 2004, and 2007 being conducted as part of a joint research study by Augustana College, Allegheny College, College of Wooster and Washington College. The purpose of the study is to investigate the impacts our educational programs are having on the personal and professional lives of alumni, with a particular focus on the impacts of senior capstone type experiences. Questions will ask you to evaluate your undergraduate experiences, including your involvement and satisfaction with programs and their impact on your academic development, your current involvement with Augustana, and your post-graduation educational and career activities. Ultimately, we hope a benefit of the study will be to improve our academic programs.
The survey instrument is the Alumni Survey of the Higher Education Data Sharing (HEDS) consortium, with supplemental questions concerning senior capstone experiences.
