At The Patton College of Education, our vision is simple. We aim to prepare the finest leaders and change agents for the diverse future of the education and human service professions. For more than 130 years, we have prepared graduates who are leader-educators and practitioners committed to creating change and meeting diverse human and social needs.
The interactive chart below shows the range of sectors and sub-sectors of the economy that employ our alumni. The industries are based on the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS), a standardized industry classification system used by federal statistical agencies. NAICS offers different levels of detail. The NAICS 2 digit sector codes provide a higher level of aggregation, whereas the NAICS 3 digit sector codes offer a narrower, more-detailed description. You can toggle between the two using the buttons below the graphic. Numbers on the graph refer to the percentage of graduates employed in a particular sector or industry.
