Quick fact: Outcomes for recent grads
Each year the Council surveys our member institutions about the post-graduation outcomes of recent graduates. Looking at the most recent data for the class of 2016, 95 percent were employed, pursuing additional education, or doing volunteer service (e.g., Peace Corps or mission work) within a year of earning their bachelor’s degree:
- 75% of graduates listed employment as their primary activity.
- 16% listed continuing education as their primary activity.
- 4% listed volunteer service as their primary activity.
