Student Evaluations of the Bronx Community College Office of Employment Counseling and Placement.
Donnangelo, Frank P.
The degree to which the City University of New York (CUNY) prepares students for useful lives can be measured, in part, by the degree to which its graduates are able to find employment. In order to assess the effectiveness of the newly developed counseling services of the Office of Employment Counseling and Placement at Bronx Community College, graduates and alumni who had used the service during the 1979-1980 and 1980-1981 academic years were asked to complete counselor evaluation questionnaires. Results of these surveys were compared with results from an April 1980 college-wide survey conducted prior to the Employment Office efforts at program improvements. The percentage of graduates and alumni who rated the counseling services satisfactory increased from 46% in 1979-1980 to 67% in 1980-1981; this was significantly greater at the .01 level in both years than the percentage of students who rated job placement services adequate to excellent in the April 1980 college-wide survey. The results demonstrate that a well planned effort at improving services such as an employment counseling and placement program can lead to increased student satisfaction. (Author/JAC)
