The University of St. Thomas

2015 Alumni Attitude Survey

In October and November 2015, we invited all alumni to complete a survey about their impressions of the University of St. Thomas. We are grateful to all who took the time to provide feedback. Your message was loud and clear: We do very well in many areas and can use some improvement in others.

More than 90 percent of respondents told us that it was a good decision to attend St. Thomas.

We will conduct mini-surveys annually -- the next one is coming up in October 2016 -- and another full benchmark survey in 2018. There always is an open invitation to contact us with your impressions of our efforts to strengthen the St. Thomas alumni community.

Here’s what we heard, along with some examples of how we address these topics:
