The Center for Engaged Learning and the Elon Poll recently collaborated on a national survey of nearly 1,600 U.S. college graduates, age 18-34, to:

  • Explore how commonly graduates experienced high impact undergraduate experiences, including meaningful relationships with faculty, undergraduate research, internships, and more;
  • Investigate what skills and competencies are the most important in their day-to-day lives now, and whether they developed those skills in college; and
  • Establish the most common types of writing college graduates do for their jobs, and whether college prepared them to do this writing.
