Community College of Rhode Island Report on Career Placement and External Transfer of 1990 Graduates.
Community Coll. of Rhode Island, Warwick.
In 1991, a survey was conducted of the 1,301 students who graduated from the Community College of Rhode Island (CCRI) in 1990 to identify the educational goals and career directions of CCRI graduates; to gather information about the employment status and salary ranges of graduates who elected full-time employment; and to identify colleges and universities chosen by those who went on to continue their education on a full-time basis. Study findings based on responses from 993 graduates included the following: (1) 55% of the graduates were employed full time, including 116 graduates who were also attending school part time; (2) 10.2% were employed part time; (3) 1.9% were unavailable for employment, and 2.9% were unemployed and seeking employment; and (4) 30% were attending school full time, including 137 graduates who were concurrently employed part time. The study report presents placement and transfer data on graduates of each of CCRI's 25 programs, including for each program the number of 1990 graduates; the number of survey respondents; a profile of responding graduates working in their fields of concentration, including the average salary, the salary range, positions and employers; and a profile of responding graduates continuing their education full time, by major and institution. Appendixes provide a list of CCRI programs and concentrations, the survey instrument, and a comparison of 1988, 1989, and 1990 graduates. (JMC)
