First Destinations of K Grads

Each year, the CCPD gathers data from graduating seniors through the College’s First Destination Survey. As of December 17, 2019, we had first destination data on 88% (261/295) of 2019 graduates.

By December 2019, among reporting graduates:

  • 92% of those who sought employment had secured jobs.
  • 15% were already enrolled in continuing education.
  • 5% were engaged in Volunteer/Service opportunities such as Teach for America or the Peace Corps.
  • Overall, 92% of the Class of 2019 were employed, in graduate school, in the military, or engaged in a gap/service year within six months of graduation.

In alignment with current national standards, paid service opportunities such as Teach for America, AmeriCorps, and the Peace Corps are considered Volunteer/Service Programs.

For reported Senior Exit/First Destination Survey data from 2014-2018 divided by major please contact the CCPD at Career@kzoo.edu. Some graduates elected not to share their first-destination information, so this data by major does not include all graduates in the major.
