Review of the Alumni Survey results lead NYCC to the conclusion that in order for the data to be truly meaningful, comparison data from other institutions would be required. To determine whether NYCC was fulfilling its mission of providing excellence in education, it would be necessary to look at alumni from other chiropractic colleges. In early 2005, four other chiropractic colleges were invited to participate in a joint alumni survey of those who had graduated three, five, and seven years previously (1998, 2000, and 2002). Of these, two chiropractic colleges agreed to participate in the First Annual Chiropractic College Alumni Survey making for a total of three colleges (Life Chiropractic College West, Life University College of Chiropractic, and New York Chiropractic College). The intent of the survey, conducted in 2005, was to provide data for comparisons and benchmarking that could be used by participating chiropractic colleges.
