EVANSVILLE, IND. (05/09/2024) After surveying the class of 2023 graduates, the University of Evansville (UE) is pleased to report that 97 percent of graduates were employed or pursuing further education within six months of graduation. The median salary of those employed full-time was $60,000.

The survey, conducted annually, is a collaborative effort between the University’s Center for Career Development, Office of Institutional Effectiveness, and the Office of Alumni and Engagement. Data was gathered from surveys at the time of graduation, as well as alumni surveys, academic departments, the National Student Clearinghouse, and other methods. Approximately 96 percent of 2023 graduates provided career outcome information.

Outcomes remained consistent from the previous year and there was a reported increase in the median salary. The class of 2022 outcomes included 98 percent of graduates employed or pursuing further education within six months of graduating.

“At the University of Evansville, we foster a dynamic educational environment where academic excellence blends seamlessly with hands-on experiences like ChangeLab, internships, and research,” said Dianna Cundiff, director of the Center for Career Development. “Our commitment to cultivating career readiness like critical thinking, communication, and leadership, alongside dedicated support from our office, ensures our students are ready for success in their future endeavors.”

For over a decade, the Center for Career Development has implemented an “end to end” approach to career success. When a prospective student visits campus, they meet with the Center to review career interests, take a free career assessment, and explore future job opportunities. As a student, the Center offers appointments to assist with resumes and cover letters, mock interviews, and career advising. Job fairs are held throughout the year to connect students with local and regional employers. After graduation, the Center continues its outreach to alums to ensure each individual’s success.
