Office of Institutional Research
April 22, 2005
In order to achieve the goals
of gathering information from graduates and their employers,
Office of Institutional Research asked for graduates’ assistance
and permission to survey their employers. An invitation
letter was therefore constructed with detailed explanations
of the Employer Satisfaction Survey procedures. The UND
Alumni Foundation provided mailing labels including 2,129
graduates who earned a bachelors degree from UND in December
2002, May 2003, or August 2003. This invitation letter
along with the Employer Survey Consent Form were mailed
out to the graduates on September 10, 2004.
A total of 106 graduates provided their consent and designated a person to be
contacted by the Office of Institutional Research. The Office then mailed an
invitation letter and a blank Employer Satisfaction Survey form directly to the
designated person whose name was provided by the graduates on the consent form.
The designated person was asked to mail the completed survey directly to Noel
Levitz for scoring. By the deadline for the collection of the Employer Satisfaction
Survey, November 15, 2004, a total of 77 completed surveys had been received
by Noel Levitz. When calculate the adjusted response rate of all graduates, it
has only reached an overall 4% response rate.
Noel Levitz only provided the Office
of Institutional Research with a set of descriptive analyses about the responses.
At this time, no actual data was made available for further
