CEU, From Birth to Maturity: An Examination of the Graduates of the College of Eastern Utah 1940-1975.
Seegmiller, Jesse F.
The College of Eastern Utah (CEU) conducted a follow-up study of its graduates from the 1940's through the 1970's, a study complicated by the fact that no official records of graduates were kept by the college until after the mid-1960's. Questionnaires were mailed to those for whom addresses could be obtained (n=1238), with 50% of those surveyed responding. Representativeness of the respondents was not determined. Data obtained were used in a regression analysis with salary as the dependent variable. Independent variables included in the regression equation were sex, number of years since graduation from CEU, CEU grade point average, employment history, military and college transfer history, and number of major changes in college career. These variables were found to predict 54% of the variance in salaries of CEU graduates. The single most significant predictor was sex, with men consistently earning more than women. Other analyses of the survey data showed that CEU has primarily graduated male students, though the trend has currently reversed. Overall, the vast majority of graduates were found to rate their CEU experiences positively. Extensive tabular data and analyses of graduates' demographic and biographic characteristics are included in the document. (JDS)
