This report summarizes the results of a poll administered to the alumni of the Executive Doctorate program in Higher Education Management at the University of Pennsylvania (n = 243). 151 individuals responded during the eight-day period in which the poll was open (November 11 to November 19, 2014). The poll included 11 questions and was estimated to require no more than 10 minutes to complete.

This report describes responses from all respondents. Most of these individuals (58%) are leaders of private not-for-profit four-year institutions. About 17% are leaders of public four-year institutions, 3% are from private for-profit four-year institutions, 3% are from public two-year institutions, and 2% are in administrative units (system offices). About 17% are not working for a college or university. Half (48%) of the respondents who are working for a college or university are in administrative roles, 33% are in academic positions, 10% in finance positions, and 10% in student affairs. About 13% of respon­dents reported having a strong direct connection to or responsibility for college athletics, 26% reported having some connection to or responsibility for college athletics, and 49% reported little or no direct connection to or responsibility for college athletics.
