Friday, November 10
- Miller, A. 3:45 – 4:45 p.m. Exhibit Hall Roundtable 3. “Artistically Gifted Alumni Paint a Picture of Their Institutional Satisfaction.”
Using data from the Strategic National Arts Alumni Project (SNAAP), this study explores whether arts alumni report disciplinary differences regarding satisfaction with various aspects of their institutional experiences. For undergraduate and graduate alumni, comparisons are made between the six most frequently reported majors at each level. A series of Chi-squared analyses determine whether significant differences between majors emerge for satisfaction with certain aspects such as chances to perform or exhibit work, instructor quality, and academic and career advising. Results suggest significant differences in satisfaction for various aspects of institutional experience, with strengths and weaknesses for each major.
