CAMPUS PROFILE GLOSSARY
November 2016

4990 Study Abroad Participation Rate
Source: Rajeev Malik, International Programs & Studies. Study Abroad Participation Rate: the number of undergraduate students studying abroad in for-credit programs managed by the campus or college divided by the number of individuals earning bachelor degrees this year, expressed as a percent.

5000-5036 SENIOR SURVEY
Source: Center for Teaching Excellence. Annual survey of all graduating seniors taken just after Spring break. See the Senior Survey web site for methodology. During the 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 academic years, the University began a planning process for undergraduate education that included updating the Senior Survey. During those years, the National Survey for Student Engagement was administered.

For each item, we provide the number of respondents who replied affirmatively, the total number of respondents for the question, and the percent of respondents who replied affirmatively. Starting in 2008-09, post-graduation plans were expanded to include military service and volunteer service (e.g. Teach for America, Peace Corps), and students were only permitted to include one option.

These items are not available by department; college totals were added to the college administrative unit,

Did undergrd research
The number and percent of respondents who had "worked with a professor or graduate student on a research study outside a regular class assignment". Data is available from 2004-05,

Accepted Full-time work
The number and percent of respondents who had aquired full time work as of the time of the survey. Data is available from 2005-06. Note: from 2008-09 on, includes those students going into the military or volunteer service. Prior to that year, those options were not listed.

Found a fulltime paid job
The number of respondents who indicate they will have accepted a job

Entering military service
The number of respondents who indicate they will enter military service. Data is available from 2008-09

Going to grad school
The number and percent of respondents who had been accepted at graduate or professional school and plan to attend. Data is available from 2005-06

Entering volunteer service
The number of respondents who indicate they will enter volunteer service, such as Peace Corps or Teach for America. Data is available from 2008-09

Fulltime work or grad school
Prior to 2008-09, seniors could select more than one post-graduation option. Because some seniors plan to work and to go to graduate/professional school, we provide an unduplicated number and percent of respondents who will take a job, enter the military or volunteer service, or go to graduate/professional school or do more than one of these. From 2008-09 on, students were allowed to enter only one choice, so the number will equal the sum of the individual options. Data is available from 2005-06
