Student Success Outcomes

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 yearly outcomes, including information on career preparation and engagement, to illustrate a broader story of what career success looks like at SUNY Geneseo.

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. 

Post - Secondary Employment Outcomes (PSEO)

Post - Secondary Employment Outcomes (PSEO) are experimental tabulations developed by researchers at the U.S. Census Bureau. PSEO data provide earnings and employment outcomes for college and university graduates by degree level, degree major, and post-secondary institution. These statistics are generated by matching university transcript data with a national database of jobs, using state-of-the-art confidentiality protection mechanisms to protect the underlying data.

The PSEO are made possible through data sharing partnerships between universities, university systems, State Departments of Education, State Labor Market Information offices, and the U.S. Census Bureau. PSEO data are available for post-secondary institutions whose transcript data have been made available to the Census Bureau through a data-sharing agreement.

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. 

First Destination Surveys

Geneseo and the Career Design Center have partnered with Lightcast to research and share an array of results and insights from our graduates.
