Where can I find enrollment and graduation data? What about Student Career Outcomes?

UCM publishes a Fact Book with enrollment information and graduation data for the University and individual programs.

 

Career placement rates for safety science graduates are very high. We have so many calls for student interns, we need more students to fill them! Our students are extremely competitive in the job market and have earned excellent starting salaries.
