Measuring Our Impact
Measuring what matters most is how we hold ourselves accountable for having an impact on higher education that will change lives for the better. We believe transparency and data-driven decision-making are critical for higher ed. Our Annual Report tells the story of our progress in 2020 and our vision for the future through data, the experiences of our students, and more.
Because WGU believes its success is measured by its graduates’ success, we participate in the Gallup Alumni Survey. The survey quantifies college graduates’ academic and post-graduation outcomes.
Reinventing higher education for impact at scale requires a collective, comprehensive effort. Improving the quality, accessibility, and outcomes of higher education must compel all of us to do more. At WGU, we have invested in endeavors to transform not only the institution but also the system of higher education. Our expanded vision has WGU the university at its core, with additional entities built to magnify our innovation capacity and increase resources and capital flexibility.
