Virginia Educated Survey Results

In March 2018, stakeholders at the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) discussed how to assess the value and impact of higher education in Virginia in a holistic way that would include – but go beyond – employment and wages. This report describes information gained from Virginia Educated, a unique study designed to do that. To the research team’s knowledge, there is no other assessment of graduate outcomes in the United States that combines this study’s scale, lengthy multi-dimensional questionnaire and linkage to administrative  and secondary data to address questions about the impact of higher education on community, family and individual well-being, as well as employment and wages.


The study features 15,348 survey responses from graduates of state-supported institutions of higher education in Virginia. The respondents represent 499,665 graduates who earned an undergraduate credential (certificate, associate degree, or bachelor’s degree) from a Virginia state-supported institution of higher education between 2007 and 2018. Additional administrative and secondary data were matched to the survey data for the two-thirds of the respondents who consented to the linkage. Outreach for the survey was conducted by postal mail and email between December 2020 and May 2021, with most graduates having the option to complete the survey by web or on paper. The resulting report and detailed institutional tables can be downloaded below.
