The University Career Center tracks the initial destinations of UMD grads through the Graduation Survey which is administered to bachelor’s degree recipients for each graduation cohort.  The survey captures career-related outcomes, as well as data on participation in co-curricular activities during graduates’ tenure at the University of Maryland.  The 2016 Graduation Survey Report covers August 2016, December 2016, and May 2017 graduates (see link to full report below).
