Arts Alumni in Their Communities. 2017 SNAAP Annual Report
Skaggs, Rachel
Strategic National Arts Alumni Project
The Strategic National Arts Alumni Project (SNAAP) is a comprehensive survey administered online to the arts alumni of participating institutions. Founded in 2008, SNAAP is based at the Indiana University Center for Postsecondary Research of the School of Education and administered in cooperation with the Indiana University Center for Survey Research. SNAAP collects and analyzes data from arts graduates from a wide variety of institutions including comprehensive colleges and universities, liberal arts colleges, and special-focus arts institutions. Results described in this report are based on data collected from the 2015 and 2016 core questionnaire and the Career Skills and Entrepreneurship module. In 2015 and 2016, over 65,000 arts alumni participated in the SNAAP survey from 84 postsecondary institutions and 6 high schools in North America. Alumni report positive overall institutional experiences, and they are generally confident in their abilities in their careers. Yet, while arts institutions have helped their alumni acquire and develop many broad-based competencies for success in their work, deficits remain in some categories of skills and abilities. Almost all responding arts graduates are engaged in the arts in some manner. Alumni indicate there are resources they need for their careers that they cannot access. Student loan debt is another area of concern for some alumni. [This report was written with Alexandre Frenette, Sally Gaskill, and Angie L. Miller. For the 2016 report, see ED574453.]
