This website shares key results from the 2019 Alumni Attitude Study conducted by Performance Enhancement Group for Lafayette College. Portions of the Executive Summary and selected charts supporting the primary themes are provided.
The Alumni Attitude Study© is a national, multi-institution research Study that analyzes current alumni perceptions, attitudes, experiences, and opinions of their alma mater. Over 300 educational institutions have used the AAS process, with their alumni providing a rich database of comparable data to assist Lafayette College, in the development of a deeper understanding of its findings.
In 2019, Lafayette engaged its alumni in the Alumni Attitude Study (AAS) process. This is the second AAS project completed by the College. The previous project was completed in 2013. Results are compiled from a total of 1,856 respondents out of the 19,743 alumni presumed to have received the survey via email. This generated a 9.40% response rate. This overall response rate is consistent with the national averages, and the 1,856 responses represent a more than sufficient margin of error on all of the questions to comfortably extrapolate these findings to the broader population of alumni.
PEG compared the response demographics with the distribution demographics and determined that they are similar. Based on this, they believe that this response database resembles the overall population and represents a good sample set from which to extrapolate findings to the broader population of alumni.
