The Graduate School along with Peterson’s is pleased to announce that the 46th Annual Survey of Graduate and Professional Institutions due April 30, 2011. The Peterson’s Annual Survey is the first step in recruiting the students who will be best served by your unit or program. Once again this year, the Graduate Survey was released in an electronic format accessible via website.
You recently received an email from the Graduate School with the subject line “Annual Peterson Survey Due April 30, 2011,” which provided you with the appropriate log in and access code to complete your survey/s.
These surveys are available in a PDF fillable form to make it more convenient for you. As always, the Graduate data for the previous year will appear already pre-filled in the survey. To complete the survey you will be asked to review the information for accuracy and make any necessary changes and or updates. Most of the updated information is already available on OIRs website listed as Peterson Survey Plan Data – Fall 2010. Note that you might have to fill out more than one survey – one for your program and one for department, even if the information is exactly the same.
Surveys for programs and departments in the College of Engineering and Information Technology (COEIT) will be filled out by Karen Mattingly in the Dean’s Office.
The data that you provide on this questionnaire will be used to create FREE institutional and program profiles that will appear in Peterson’s Graduate and Professional Programs Reference Series, the definitive six-volume guide to post baccalaureate programs and the standard reference work in its field. In addition, profile data for your institution will appear on the Graduate Programs channel of Petersons.com as well as on various partner sites.
The deadline for this survey is April 30, 2011. To meet this deadline we would like you to complete your online surveys in a timely manner. Dr. Wendy Carter will be the primary contact for the Peterson’s Graduate Survey at UMBC. Please contact Dr. Carter in the Graduate School directly. She can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 410-455-2281.
