Strada Education Network partners with colleges and universities to survey alumni and document the many dimensions of value a college education delivers beyond completion.
As Strada pursued ongoing research to understand Americans’ experiences with education and work after high school, presidents, chancellors, provosts, deans and faculty approached us seeking more specific and actionable data to guide strategic initiatives and continuous improvement efforts on their campuses. In response, we developed a new survey to measure alumni perspectives on how their education affected their lives and their careers. In addition to the confidential data and reports provided to the more than 60 participating schools, in 2021 we completed a national survey of more than 3,000 alumni to provide insights and benchmarks to the entire field.
Explore results from the 2021 national benchmark study using net benefit scores.*
*Net benefit scores are calculated by subtracting the percentage of negative responses from the percentage of positive responses. The percentage of neutral responses are not included in the score.
