JACKSON — Within six months of receiving their degree, 98 percent of Union’s class of 2019 were employed or enrolled in graduate school, according to an “Undergraduate First-Destination Survey” conducted by Union’s Vocatio Center for Life Calling and Career.
Union’s 98 percent placement rate is about 12 points above the national placement rate average of 85.7 percent in 2018 (the most recent data). Union’s knowledge rate of its most recent study is 93 percent, which reflects how many placements of the 231 graduates are known.
“Being well above the national average, I think it shows the value of a Union degree,” said Alex Huguenard, director of the Vocatio Center. “The vast majority of them are meaningful placements.”
