Alumni Career Trends Survey

Career Trends Survey at the School of Public Health (SPH)

In January 2021, SPH invited all alumni who graduated more than one year ago to participate in a comprehensive survey about their experiences at SPH and career trajectories since graduation. Survey responses will help us meet our requirements for the Council for Education on Public Health (CEPH) accreditation, as well as:

  • Understand alumni perceptions of satisfaction with and the effectiveness of their SPH education;
  • Collect critical data from alumni as it relates to our SPH commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion; and
  • Understand career paths of SPH alumni.

The survey will also act as a pilot for a national alumni career trends study by the Association for Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH).

How will my responses be used?
Your responses will help inform the future of SPH education, programming, and our learning environment. Expect to hear more about findings in spring/summer of 2021.

How will you keep my information private?
Your responses are confidential and identifiers will never be shared with anyone outside the University of Minnesota. Aggregate data will be used within the School of Public Health and provided to the reporting and accrediting bodies for public health education in the United States.  

What’s in it for me?
In addition to helping inform the future of public health education, alumni who respond by March 5, 2021 will be entered into a drawing to receive 1 of 10 $100 Amazon gift cards.

How do I access the survey?
Your personalized survey link was sent to you the week of January 11, 2021. You will receive your link via email, text message, or postcard. A portion of our alumni will receive a paper survey as their first point of contact. If you did not receive a paper survey, can’t find notification of your survey link, or would prefer to receive your survey via a different modality, please contact

Thank you in advance for taking the time to provide the School of Public Health with your valuable input.
