A Chance To Succeed: The CHANCE Program Alumni Survey. Participants from 1968 through 2002.
In summer 2002, a telephone survey was conducted to learn about Northern Illinois University (NIU) alumni who had been admitted through the CHANCE program at some point in its 34-year history. The completed survey included responses from more than 500 alumni representing students admitted from 1968 through 2001. The alumni were overwhelmingly positive in their answers. Nearly all said that the program offered an opportunity to go to college that they did not feel they had before. Respondents found attending NIU to be a very positive experience and thought that the university provided them with a quality educational experience in a diverse environment. The vast majority (94%) said they would and had recommended CHANCE to others. The majority of these alumni work in Business and Education, but there is a wide range of employment and responsibility among the participants. Findings show that the CHANCE program has been an outstanding success in the eyes of the participants. Seven appendixes contain data tables. (Contains 11 tables and 3 figures.) (SLD)
