First Destination Survey

The First Destination Survey is administered to track students’ first destination when they graduate from ECU. The survey asks students about their employment, enrollment in higher education, or involvement in other work/activities. The goals of the survey are to gather data in an efficient manner to avoid survey fatigue and provide colleges, departments, and programs with aggregated data. Survey data are combined with other sources and the results are reported through the dashboard.

Students are asked to report their employment or enrollment status at the time of graduation. IPAR then collaborates with colleges and departments during the six months after graduation to obtain updated first destination information for the remaining students.
