The Council surveys our 17 member institutions each year about the post-graduation outcomes of recent graduates. Looking at the most recent data for the class of 2019 and their primary activity:
- 74 percent listed employment
- 15 percent listed continuing education with the largest share enrolled in master’s program
- 3 percent listed volunteer service (e.g., Peace Corps or mission work)
- 0.6 percent listed military service
In addition, 69 percent add to the quality of the state’s workforce and tax base by staying in Minnesota after graduating.
Minnesota Private College Council member institutions collaborate on surveying our recent graduates to gain a better sense of our graduates’ plans and employment after graduation. This report summarizes results for the class of 2020. (February 2022)
