The 2013-2014 Baccalaureate (Academic) Alumni Survey is being conducted on RoseSTEM, Rose-Hulman’s online alumni network, between January 16 and February 28 for alumni who graduated in 1993, 1998, 2003, 2008, and 2012 (corresponding to the current alumni survey plan of 1, 5, 10, 15, and 20 years out).
The primary purposes for administering the alumni survey are regularly seeking feedback from key constituents, our alumni, on their collegial experience and their suggestions for improving our degree programs. In addition, aggregated survey results will be incorporated in our self-study reports to both the program and institutional accrediting agencies (ABET and Higher Learning Commission).
In order to reduce the burden on our alumni from receiving numerous and potentially duplicate requests for information, the Office of Institutional Research, Planning and Assessment, Institutional Advancement, and Alumni Affairs are collaborating on administering this year’s alumni survey on RoseSTEM. RoseSTEM is our official online alumni network that offers up-to-date alumni news, class notes, photos, and event information to all alumni. We are hoping to utilize this platform to keep our requests for recurring information update to the minimum by providing opportunity and online access to our alumni for updating their profile information at their convenience. Information about targeted professional development and other social events of interest could then be directed to alumni who have expressed interests in their profiles. In addition, with updated alumni profile information on RoseSTEM, future alumni survey and other inquiries could be tailored to specific topics of interest without adding to the length of the survey forms for background information already existed in alumni profiles.
If you have any suggestion or idea to make our communication works better for you, please share your thoughts with Timothy Chow, Director of Institutional Research, at your convenience. Thank you for your attention and Let’s Go Rose–the Fightin’ Engineers!
