A pair of important surveys have been distributed to students in the past weeks. The First Destination Survey collects information about students' post-graduation plans — valuable data that helps inform our career and advising services.
Likewise, an email invitation for The Times Higher Education Survey was sent to a random sample of undergraduate students in mid-April. This survey, created by the Wall Street Journal, helps refine our position in the Times Higher Education College Rankings.
Please encourage your students to help us improve the VCU experience by participating in these informative surveys.
