Graduates of the James M. Farquhar Center for Undergraduate Studies at Nova Southeastern university Offer Judgment on Their University Experience, July 1, 1995, to June 30, 1996. Report No. 96-23.
MacFarland, Thomas W.
This study surveyed 823 graduates of Nova Southeastern University, Florida, who received bachelor's degrees from July, 1995 through June, 1996. The survey focused on student attitudes toward their experience at the university. Surveys were returned by 284 graduates. Results are presented separately for the two main programs the College of Professional and Liberal Studies, a day program for traditional college-age students, and the College of Career Development, an evening and weekend program for working adults. Overall, graduates reported they were pleased with their university experience and felt able to translate this experience into personal and professional gains. One substantial demographic finding was a noticeable percentage decrease in white, non-Hispanic graduates and an increase in Hispanic graduates from 1990/91 (when a similar survey was conducted). Individual sections of the report include: an introduction; an explanation of the survey development and population sampling; detailed discussions of the results of each survey question; and a summary, which compares the two colleges and discusses the constituent market. A review of demographic changes anticipated for the institution's South Florida base completes the report. The survey is appended. (Contains 23 references.) (DB)
