Employment & Graduation Data

The University of Louisville Career Development Center (CDC) has partnered with the Office of Institutional Effectiveness (IE) to better understand where our graduates work and continue their education after graduation from UofL. Each year, the CDC and IE collect information from a variety of sources to learn more about the graduation trends of our graduating classes, and employment opportunities.

2017 First Destination Survey

The University of Louisville Career Development Center is currently collecting data about the employment status of the December 2016, May 2017, and August 2017 graduating classes. The survey is distributed via email addresses provided to the university by graduating students. The results of this survey will allow the CDC to have more strategic and in-depth conversations with incoming, current, and graduating students about what our graduates are doing in their first position after leaving UofL.

Survey questions intend to gather information on the following topics:

  • Employment status
  • Salary and first-year bonuses
  • Employer and job title
  • Location of first position
  • Graduate and professional school enrollment
  • Internship and experiential learning experiences
  • Use of Career Development Center Services
  • Strategic follow-up with alumni still seeking employment
Results of this survey will be published Summer 2018.
