Highlights from the Follow-Up Survey of Spring 1977 Graduate as of November 1977.
Reichard, Donald J.; Sutton, Dorothy F.
May 1977 graduates of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro were surveyed in the winter of 1977-78. The 665 responses to the mailed questionnaire were representative of the 1,065 graduates. In the presentation of findings, differences by school and degree level are noted. At the bachelor's degree level, the 538 responses were also examined by sex and race for each school. At the master's degree level, analyses across schools were made only by sex. The 19 doctoral level responses were examined by school of major and in most instances are reported as a single group. Highlights are presented on graduates' employment status, background characteristics, educational plans, satisfaction with major and college, attitudes and values, relative importance of job characteristics, life style preferences, competencies possessed, and competencies enhanced. A sample survey is appended. (SW)
