Bathroy, Michael; DiCarlo, Robert D.
A survey of the graduates who had earned an associate degree in liberal arts or career programs at Greenfield Community College (GCC) from 1977 was conducted to determine the graduates' vocational and/or educational pursuits. Major findings for all GCC graduates, based on a 42% response rate, include the following: (1) 84% had been employed full-time since graduation; (2) 98% were currently employed full- or part-time and/or were students and/or homemakers; (3) 81% were currently Massachusetts residents; (4) 60% had earned in excess of $9,000 per year; and (5) 61% had gone on for further education, with 59% of these graduates receiving additional degrees. Major findings for the liberal arts majors, based on a 42% response rate, reveal that 64% were currently employed, 33% were employed part-time, and the remaining 3% were unemployed. The majority (80%) were Massachusetts residents, and 62% earned $9,000 per year or more. Most (81%) went on for further education, with 64% receiving additional degrees. Findings for the career program graduates were based on a 40% response rate, revealing that 65% were currently employed full-time. With regard to income, 57% earned $9,000 per year or more. Less than half (47%) went on for further education, but of these 54% eventually earned an additional degree. Textual and graphical summaries are provided for both respondent groups. (JP)
