WIU Alumni Surveys

Western Illinois University administers an Alumni Survey annually.  The survey asks former students about their employment, further education, satisfaction with the university and degree major, and perceptions of educational practices while in college.

The survey cycle rotates among One Year Out, Five Years Out, and Nine Years Out. 

Our most recent survey was a Nine Years Out Survey of the Class of 2009 conducted in 2018.

Results for this survey may be found here.
