Graduating Student Exit Survey (GSES)

The Graduating Student Exit Survey (GSES) is a homegrown instrument used primarily to capture post-graduation plans for Howard University graduates (Undergraduate Students and Graduate/Professional Students). Prior to 2019, the primary purpose of the GSES was to obtain information about students' satisfaction with a range of curricular and co-curricular experiences. After receiving feedback from various stakeholders at the university, the instrument was shortened and revised for the 2019 administration. Below are executive summaries for the GSES.
