Survey Says!

Alumni rate their overall experience at Seattle University


  • Digg

Earlier this year Seattle University sent a survey to alumni seeking input on how the university supported you, while a student, in your academic, personal, professional and spiritual development. Central to this survey was how SU fulfilled its educational mission. More than 1,400 alumni responded and provided invaluable feedback that will be used to improve the quality and value of an SU education. Here’s a brief look at some key findings:

  • Alumni from both undergraduate and graduate programs report high levels of satisfaction with the overall quality of academics, faculty and professional development.
  • Alumni indicated a strong sense of connection to the university mission.
  • Undergraduate and graduate alumni believe their experience at SU reflected that mission.
  • Areas that need improvement are centered on campus engagement and development of the “whole person.”

Information from this survey will be helpful in the university evaluating its performance against its own standards of success and specific standards required by the self-study.
