Five-Year Alumni Study of Community College and Technical Institute Students. 1966-67 to 1970-71.
Roesler, Elmo V., Ed.
A survey was conducted among alumni of Asheville-Bancombe Technical Institute. Questionnaires were mailed to approximately 941 alumni, and 691 or 73 percent were returned. Questions dealt with: (1) personal background information; (2) graduates' experiences with employment, military service, and post-two-year college work; (3) graduates' evaluations of the ABTI program as adequate preparation for their subsequent activities; (4) experiences in specific subject fields and changes graduates would make regarding their majors; (5) graduates' recommendations for upgrading administration, teaching practices, use of the physical plant and equipment, and curriculum. Data will be used to establish alumni files and in a consortium-wide sharing of alumni data. Results showed that: (1) 92 percent were employed; (2) 367 noted post-ABTI education or training; and (3) over 90 percent found counseling and/or advisory services helpful. Background information on the study, the alumni study questionnaire, and tabulated responses to questions for the eight consortium institutions are provided in appendices. (KM)
