DePaul University participates in national arts-alumni survey

August 17, 2011

DePaul University is participating in the Strategic National Arts Alumni Project (SNAAP), a one-of-a-kind survey that explores the lives of arts alumni nationwide. After three years of field testing, SNAAP is launching its first national survey of arts graduates this fall, with the participation of many institutions nationwide.

All of DePaul’s arts alumni for whom the university has a valid e-mail address will receive an invitation to participate in this online survey (

Alumni can verify that the university has their correct e-mail address by visiting By updating their information, alumni can be sure not to miss their chance to share their experiences and help shape the future of arts education across the country and at DePaul.

When alumni complete the SNAAP survey, they will have access to a site where they can see how their experiences compare with those of other survey participants. They can see where arts graduates live, where they work, what they earn and how their arts educations have influenced their lives.

The time DePaul alumni spend sharing their experiences will help participating arts institutions across the country better prepare students for success, whether they stay in the arts or use what they’ve learned in other professional fields.

SNAAP is supported by grants from the Surdna Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and other foundations.
