As mathematics provide the language for science, institutional data provides the language for planning, assessment and policy research. Through assessment, we find out how to improve quality.

NC State is currently administering our triennial Baccalaureate Alumni Survey to almost 12,000 alumni who graduated between Summer 2006 and May 2009. The survey provides extensive information on the employment and further education of our graduates, as well as assesses general education goals, the impact of involvement in co-curricular activities while at NC State, and overall satisfaction with their undergraduate experience. In addition, the survey includes a total of 54 unique program-specific surveys designed to solicit feedback from alumni on their experiences in their major area of study. Look for results from the 2012 Alumni Survey to be published on our website early this summer; results from previous Alumni Surveys are available online at:
