The primary mission of the Community College of Rhode Island (CCRI) is to help students succeed in reaching their educational goals by preparing them to enter the workforce or transfer to a 4-year college or university. Each year, CCRI surveys the previous year's graduates as a way of measuring success. About 1,379 members of the class of 2001 were asked to provide information about place of employment, job title, salary, and status of continuing education. Also, 1,126 (81.7%) responded to the survey. The report indicates 517, or 45.9%, of graduates were employed full-time; 126 (11.2%) were employed full-time and going to school part-time; 106 (9.4%) were employed part-time, 20 (1.8%) were unavailable for employment; 55 (4.9%) were unemployed and searching; 112 (9.9%) were in school full-time; and 190 (16.9%) were in school full-time and working part-time. More than 93% of respondents were employed, continuing their education, or both. The report breaks down employment and transfer status into 26 different programs and departments, ranging from Business Administration to Liberal Arts and Technical Studies. Average salaries reported are based on a 40-hour week and are reported only for education-related employment. Research instrument appended. (NB)
