Outcomes are just one of the many ways to measure student success after graduation. The numbers on their own do not tell the complete story of the impact our graduates make in the world, but they may be helpful as a starting point as our students begin to explore the wide array of opportunities and industries available to them. We look forward to sharing outcomes for the class of 2021, including information on career preparation and engagement, to illustrate a broader story of what career success looks like at SUNY Geneseo. Look for this information coming in March 2022. 

National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Data

The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) First Destination Survey provides outcomes data submitted by recent college graduates for all degree levels. SUNY Geneseo is among the 200 college and universities who participate in this national survey. 

2020 National Alumni Career Mobility (NACM) Annual Report

An annual national benchmark report for US colleges & universities on high impact career mobility practices from the insights of 5 and 10-year alumni. SUNY Geneseo was a NACM survey participant in 2021. Data insights will be shared in March 2022.

Outcomes Defined
One of many student success metrics, the outcomes metric captures the percentage of graduates employed full or part time, attending graduate school, volunteering full time and/or in the military. Ideally, we are seeking a >60% knowledge rate and review the outcomes over a period of time, starting at 6 months and beyond. 

Graduating Class of 2019

79% of our graduates achieved positive outcomes 18 months after graduation. (*Data from Institutional Research as compiled by Career Design Center)

Graduating Class of 2020

Due to Covid, we were unable to effectively connect with our graduates and thus unable to secure a credible knowledge rate. We do not have reliable data at this time. (*Institutional Research and Career Design Center)

Graduating Class of 2021

We are thrilled to share that Geneseo and the Career Design Center have partnered with the Career Leadership Collective to research and share an array of results and insights from our 2021 graduates. We expect this upcoming interactive dashboard to be accessible by the end of March 2022. Stay tuned!
