IER makes use of surveys and forms to measure and assess CSU students, faculty, and
administration. In particular, these surveys and forms capture data that is required
for state and federal reporting related to the primary functions of the University
as it relates to teaching, research and service. Further, these forms also provide
additional information on matriculation, retention, graduation and employment experiences.
Post Baccalaureate One-Year, Five-Years, and Nine-Years Out Surveys
The post baccalaureate survey provides demographic data, academic data, and general
information on graduate outcomes related to employment, degree advancement and academic
life at Chicago State University (CSU) one-year, five-years and nine-years out from
graduation from CSU. A mandated survey of the Illinois Board of Higher Education (IBHE)
for all public universities, this survey is tailored to each respective public institution
for gathering additional information from recent graduates regarding their thoughts
about their academic experiences and current/future employment opportunities. These
surveys provide additional information in regards to the overall satisfaction with
CSU and their current employment status.

in terms of teaching, research, and service, and is used to allocate funding and resources
to state universities. The information collected in these surveys provides important
measurements for the university. Data is collected for each academic term (Fall, Spring,
