• The current measure for this metric is the percent of students who enroll at UNLV based on total acceptances.

2017-2018: • Goal: Year 1 to Year 2 retention rate of 85% by 2025; Six-year graduation rate of 50% by 2025. • Decision Support to develop system to track and make data readily available.

STA K2 STA K3

• Retention Rate for 2016 Cohort - 74.4% • Graduation 2011/2017 - 41.6%

• Senior Associate Vice President for Alumni Engagement and Annual Giving was planning to launch a revised, nation-wide alumni survey. He invited Asst. Dir/Undergrad Assessment and Accreditation to take part in the planning process for the survey and help to craft some custom items relevant to alumni satisfaction with curricular and co-curricular experiences at UNLV.

• The survey was launched in October, 2017, and data are expected to be returned in mid-January, 2018.

• Office of Campus Life Assessment is planning to administer the NASPA Consortium Study for Campus Activities. This study, in which UNLV has participated in the past, provides national

benchmarks for student involvement in campus activities and the impact of those activities on the overall collegiate experience. We are also moving to better discriminate within the SSI and NSSI and identify specific target issues to address and enhance.

• Working with the Office of Community Engagement we are surveying all UNLV course offerings to assess student service learning and how

3. We have completed the graduate data needs assessment and shared the document with Brent Drake.

4. The Graduate Rebel Gateway Project is ongoing. In addition to system fixes, ongoing integration with MyUNLV (building a two-way data bridge), and creation of admissions and GA dashboards for the Grad College and for each individual program, we have made significant progress toward our transition into DocuSign electronic forms and building
