  • Less than one year after graduation, 94 percent of the respondents are either employed or engaged in further education.
  • Among those who are employed, about three-fourths report that their current position is related to their studies at Keene State College, and 85 percent of these indicated that Keene State had prepared them Well or Very Well for this employment.
  • About one in five respondents is engaged in further study, mostly pursuing master’s degrees.
  • Among those who are engaged in further education, 95 percent reported that their current studies are related to their studies at Keene State College, and 87 percent judged that Keene State had prepared them Well or Very Well for this next step in their education.

Of the graduates surveyed, 46 percent still reside in New Hampshire.

“This survey demonstrates that Keene State College is a major contributor to the success of graduates entering the workforce or gaining post-graduate education. An investment in public higher education is also an investment in our state’s workforce and economic development,” said Jay Kahn, Keene State College Interim President.
