University of the Rockies Alumni Statistics

Alumni Types of Employment

In 2011, the University of the Rockies invited its graduates for whom it had sufficient contact information to participate in an Alumni survey. The invitees included students who graduated from the University on or after June 24, 2004 and before April 15, 2011. The Alumni Survey was conducted in April 2011. Surveys with sufficient information reporting types of employment were returned by 114 graduates out of a total of 277 to whom surveys were sent.

The following list includes the current occupations listed by five or more survey respondents. The list identifies types of occupations reported as of the date of the survey without regard to date of graduation and without regard to when the graduate obtained the employment. The list also includes occupations reported without regard to whether the position is in the graduate’s field of study.

Based on the Alumni Survey responses, five or more University of the Rockies graduates responding to the surveys reported that they were currently employed as of the survey date in the following types of occupations:

Clinician/Psychologist/Psychotherapist
Healthcare/Human Services
Post-Doctoral Resident/Candidate or Fellow
Clinical Manger/Director

Master's-Level Alumni Employment Information

In April 2011, University of the Rockies invited students who had successfully graduated from University of the Rockies to participate in an alumni survey. The invitees included students who graduated from University of the Rockies on or after September 20, 2002. Employment information for Master's-level alumni of the University is reported here. Of the 155 Master's-level alumni who were invited to participate in the survey, 76 responded to the survey for a response rate of approximately 49%.

Based on the April 2011 alumni survey results, 78% of University of the Rockies Master's-level alumni who: earned a Master's degree at the University, responded to the survey, and did not indicate that they were not actively seeking employment, reported that they were employed in a full-time or part-time position as of the survey date. The University used the following data to calculate this rate:

  1. Total Master's-level alumni survey respondents: 76
  2. Master's-level alumni survey respondents who indicated they were not actively seeking employment for one of the following reasons - Family Emergency, Continuing Education, or Otherwise Not Currently Seeking Employment: 13
  3. Master's-level alumni survey respondents who responded they were employed full-time (30 or more hours per week): 39
  4. Master's-level alumni survey respondents who responded they were employed part-time (less than 30 hours per week): 10
  5. Master's-level alumni survey respondents who responded they were not employed and indicated they were actively seeking employment: 14
  6. The employment rate was calculated by adding items 3 and 4 and dividing the total by the difference between items 1 and 2.

The calculation also included the following additional steps and exclusions:

  • Survey respondents were counted as employed whether they obtained their current employment following graduation or already held their current employment prior to or during their enrollment at the school.
  • Survey respondents were counted as employed whether or not their current employment was in their field of study at the University.
  • Survey respondents were counted as employed if they reported that they were employed as of the survey date, rather than if they were employed as of, or shortly after, their graduation date. In some cases, the survey date is several months or years after students' graduation dates.
  • The employment rate does not include data on whether the alumni who did not respond to the surveys - (approximately 51%, or 79) of the 155 Master's-level alumni invited to participate - were employed or not employed.
