Graduate Follow-Up Survey
College of the Mainland surveys its graduates to provide them an opportunity to share how their education at COM affected their lives. The survey helps gain insight into the student's experiences at COM, whether the student continued his education or entered the workforce.
As a part of the college’s Institutional Effectiveness initiatives, the Noel-Levitz Student Satisfaction Inventory (SSI) and the Institutional Priorities Survey (IPS) are administered every other year. The SSI measures student satisfaction and priorities, showing how satisfied COM students are as well as what issues are important to them. The IPS is the companion survey for faculty and staff. Both surveys provide valuable feedback that can be used in various assessment and planning activities across campus.
