Employers, academic leaders and support staff, career counselors, academic advisers and admissions counselors can benefit from hearing what students and graduates say are their most valuable college experiences and what employers say are the most valuable skills they seek in future employees.
Research by Darryl Greer, the Hughes Center’s Senior Fellow, as part of the Higher Education and Strategic Information and Governance (HESIG) project and the Stockton Polling Institute, found that recent college graduates believe the most important college outcome is to get a better job.
HESIG’s research has been supported by ETS and by the Office of the Secretary of Higher Education’s Student Success Collaborative.
