  Title Listening to alumni: First annual survey with multi-chiropractic college participation [poster presentation; the Association of Chiropractic Colleges' Thirteenth Annual Conference, 2006]
Journal J Chiropr Educ. 2006 Spring;20(1):110
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Meeting Abstract
Abstract/Notes In the spring of 2004, New York Chiropractic College (NYCC) conducted an alumni survey as part of the self-study process for the regional accrediting body. Concurrently, NYCC was also developing a longitudinal student survey system that would track students by anticipated graduation date. It was intended that these two separate survey processes would eventually lead to the ability to observe how program modifications affected outcomes not only while students were in the program, but also the impact on success and satisfaction of alumni. The 2004 Alumni Survey was administered to alumni that had graduated within the last ten years. Over 700 alumni responded to the survey (a 33% response rate).

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.
