How the First Destination Survey Supports the Mission of IPFW:
The responses we collect and present help future Mastodons prepare for their career and other post-graduation goals. The IPFW Career Services First Destination Survey provides comprehensive and reliable data which can be used to accurately inform and shape career expectations of current undergraduates, new alumni, and prospective students. Equally important, the survey facilitates IPFW’s compliance with the outcomes data requirements of the Higher Education Opportunities Act. It also provides accurate post-graduation outcomes information to the IPFW community at large (administrators, academic departments, etc.), parents, employers and hiring organizations, and they help fulfill local, national, and international media requests.
