Manchester alumni are successful and satisfied.
“The world needs more Manchester grads,” says President Dave McFadden. Why?
Manchester alumni are change-makers. They're health care professionals, business leaders, educators and social workers. They're engaged in their workplaces and communities. They're persons of ability and conviction that fulfill Manchester's missions. And according to the June 2016 Gallop poll, "Great Jobs and Great Lives" they're active, well-adjusted and fulfilled.
Approximately 2,500 Manchester alumni took part in the study. And when compared to data gathered from colleges and universities in Indiana and throughout the U.S., Manchester's results were outstanding. Watch the videos below to hear how our alumni value their Manchester education.
