2022 UE Graduates Achieve Strong Outcomes
Posted: Monday, March 6, 2023
After surveying the class of 2022 graduates, the University of Evansville (UE) is pleased to report that 98 percent of graduates were employed or pursuing further education within six months of graduation. The median salary of those employed full-time was $55,000.
The survey, conducted annually, is a collaborative effort between the University’s Center for Career Development, Office of Institutional Effectiveness, and the Office of Alumni and Engagement. Data was gathered from surveys at the time of graduation, as well as alumni surveys, academic departments, the National Student Clearinghouse, and other methods. Approximately 93 percent of 2022 graduates provided career outcome information.
Outcomes improved over the previous year, as the nation’s economy slightly recovered from the pandemic. The class of 2021 outcomes included 95 percent of graduates employed or pursuing further education within six months of graduating.
“From academics to ChangeLab, to research and internships, the University of Evansville provides a robust and comprehensive educational experience that incorporates a strong foundation of career readiness,” said Dianna Cundiff, director of the Center for Career Development. “These essential competencies, including critical thinking, communication and leadership, along with support from our office, prepare students for success in their future endeavors.”
For nearly a decade, the Center for Career Development has implemented an “end to end” approach to career success. When a prospective student visits campus, they meet with the Center to review career interests, take a free career assessment, and explore future job opportunities. As a student, the Center offers appointments to assist with resumes and cover letters, mock interviews, and career advising. Job fairs are held throughout the year to connect students with local and regional employers. After graduation, the Center continues its outreach to alums to ensure each individual’s success.
