Trinity College has partnered with the Career Leadership Collective, a higher education solutions group, to conduct a national online survey to collect career pathway data from Trinity College alumni.

The National Alumni Career Mobility (NACM) Survey will be open from November 1, 2022 through January 15, 2023, and it seeks to learn about career satisfaction and insights from Trinity alumni three, five, ten and 15 years after graduation. The data collected by this survey will be used to help Trinity better understand the professional pathways of our graduates and help us improve how we prepare future alumni for continued career success.

If you are a member of the Class of 2019, 2017, 2012, or 2007, we invite you to take the brief survey.

The Career Leadership Collective is a higher education solutions group that provides advisory and data services to assist campuses in building capacity around career development effectiveness. The National Alumni Career Mobility Survey is their signature survey.

We invite you to actively support students and fellow alumni as they explore career paths, enter the workforce post-graduation, or transition to new careers.
