A Survey of the 1972-73 Graduates of Miami-Dade Community College.
Wenzel, Gustave G.; Corson, Hal
This annual report presents a descriptive picture of where Miami-Dade Community College graduates go after receiving their degrees or certificates. A questionnaire was distributed to the 5,484 graduates; 2,836 (52 percent) responded. Eighty-three percent of the respondents planned to continue their education; of this group, 88 percent planned to stay in Florida, 7 percent planned to go out of state, and 5 percent did not specify or were undecided. One thousand four hundred fifty-seven students planned to continue their education within the Florida State University System. Of the 17 percent not planning to continue their education, 81 percent reported that they were employed or had specific plans for employment. Two-thirds of the graduates planning to continue their education were also employed and over one-half were employed full-time. By contrast, 80 percent of the employed graduates not planning to continue their education were employed full-time. Responses of males and females are compared; 88 percent of the males, compared to 78 percent of the females, planned to continue their education. Results are compared to those of previous annual surveys, and trends are noted. One of the most significant trends mentioned is the high proportion of graduates of two-year occupational programs planning to continue their education beyond the associate degree. The questionnaire, cover letter, reminder post card, tabulated responses by degree and program, and a list of the schools, colleges, and universities selected by graduates continuing in Florida are appended.
