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 = 252). 152 alumni responded during the 9-day period in which the poll was open (September 15 through September 23, 2015). About half (55%) of respondents work at private not-for-profit four-year institutions, 16% work at public four-year institu­tions, 6% at public two-year institutions, and 3% at for-profit institutions. The remaining respondents work in organizations other than colleges and universities.
