California Univ., Davis. Office of Student Affairs Research and Information.
A random sample of 1184 graduates of University of California (UC) Davis from calendar year 1973 was contacted to collect data about long-term career outcomes and attachment to UC Davis. Approximately 59% of the sample responded. Data from the sample are presented to illustrate: graduates who have undertaken some graduate level coursework or have completed a postgraduate degree program, gender differences in patterns of postgraduate pursuits, degrees earned, sources of postgraduate degrees, ratings of preparedness for postgraduate study, employment status by gender and full-time/part-time status, career choices by gender, mean and median annual salaries by highest degree earned and by gender, satisfaction with aspects of the undergraduate experience, and changes graduates would make in their academic programs if they were considering college today. It is concluded that UC Davis provides high quality undergraduate instruction and prepares students well for graduate school, and that UC Davis graduates achieve the goals they express as freshmen in the years beyond their baccalaureates.
