WASHINGTON, April 10, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Gallup has released the results of a new study that compares the satisfaction and overall well-being of Western Governors University (WGU) graduates with graduates from other institutions in the U.S. According to the study, WGU graduates are reporting significantly higher levels of overall well-being and career success than the national average. In the report, WGU graduates credit their student experience, relevant curriculum, and individualized faculty support as key contributors.
The survey, which included 2,452 WGU graduates, compared the WGU responses to the national data included in the Gallup-Purdue Index. The study examined WGU alumni outcomes based on Gallup’s measures of workforce and life outcomes – including employee engagement, well-being, and emotional attachment to the university. The study provides insight into these outcomes and the graduates’ reflections on their undergraduate experiences.
