Community Coll. of Rhode Island, Warwick.
The document presents the survey results on the employment and continuing status of the 1999 graduates of the Community College of Rhode Island (CCRI). The statistical breakdown reveals that 80.4 percent of the 1999 graduates are employed (48.7 percent full-time), 33.4 percent are continuing their education (11.9 percent full-time), and 4.8 percent continue to seek employment. Data about employment status, educational aspirations, and average salaries are provided for graduates in 27 fields. Of the 196 Business Administration graduates who responded, 108 (55.1%) indicated that they were employed full time. Business Administration graduates had an average annual salary of $29,420 ($14,352-$62,400 range). Among graduates of the Criminal Justice and Legal Studies Program who responded, 82 (61.7%) indicated full-time employment. The program meets the requirements established by many police departments, which mandate successful completion of 60 hours of college course work in law enforcement for consideration for employment. The Liberal Arts degree program is designed for students intending to transfer to baccalaureate degree programs following graduation from CCRI. Graduates transfer most often to Rhode Island College and the University of Rhode Island. Of the 251 graduates of the program who responded, 56 (22.3%) indicated "education full-time," 61 (24.3%) indicated "education full-time/employed part-time," and 71 (28.3%) indicated "employed full-time."
