St. Lawrence College Scores Above Provincial Average in Annual Survey

Brockville/Cornwall/Kingston – One hundred percent of employers of St. Lawrence College (SLC) graduates are satisfied or very satisfied with their hires, scoring well above the provincial rate of 90.6 percent, according to the annual Key Performance Indicator (KPI) survey released on December 8, 2021. The KPI survey results reflect the experience of students who graduated in the 2019-2020 academic year.

St. Lawrence College also scored well above the provincial average in the other KPIs:

  • 80.6 percent of St. Lawrence College graduates were satisfied or very satisfied with the quality of their education; provincially, the graduate satisfaction rate was 78 percent.
  • 80.1 percent of St. Lawrence College graduates were working within six months of graduation; provincially the graduate employment rate was 77 percent.

“SLC consistently scores above the provincial average in the KPIs,” said Glenn Vollebregt, President and CEO, St. Lawrence College. “The 100 percent employer satisfaction rate speaks to how we consistently help fill the need for qualified, highly skilled graduates for in-demand careers. This will be more important than ever as colleges and our graduates help Ontario recover from the pandemic, and the satisfaction our students report having, with the quality of their education is a tremendous reflection on the excellent work done by our faculty and staff.”

Provincial KPIs are gathered annually by two independent research firms for the colleges and for the Ministry of Colleges and Universities.
