Alumni phone survey – your opinion counts

All new graduates, as well as those who have graduated in the last two years, from all colleges in Ontario, will be called as part of a phone survey from a company called Forum Research Canada. This ministry-led initiative captures opinions and experiences as well as assures program quality and graduate outcomes. Each college is required to provide the government with graduate contact information for the purpose of surveying graduates objectively. Please contact Angela Sutton, Georgian’s Director of Institutional Research, by phone at 705.728.1968, ext. 1273 or by email if you have any questions.
