Outcomes and Data

The First Destination Survey captures information about graduating seniors and what they plan to do upon leaving Case Western Reserve University. Graduates report that they are employed, attending graduate or professional school, available for full-time employment, or engaged in other plans that might include part-time work, military service, community service, family care, or choosing not to work.

To address experiential learning, students from each graduating class were asked whether they participated in experiential learning activities and what impact these activities had on their post graduations plans.

FDS Infographics

Beginning with the class of 2018, a series of infographics were created to visualize the most salient results for the class as a whole, as well as each undergraduate school and college. For those who would like to dig deeper, we are partnering with Institutional Research to make the last three years' worth of FDS data searchable, sortable, and comparable via Tableau, with the expectation of completion by mid-May 2019.

FDS Reports

Previous reports, dating back to 2005, are also available: 

Internship Survey Reports

The Internship Survey report asks sophomores, juniors, and seniors to reflect on internships completed in the prior academic year (Fall, Spring, Summer). Information in the report includes a breakdown of paid vs. unpaid internships, hourly wage, as well as internship employers and compensation by major.
