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 = 251). 115 alumni responded during the 9-day pe­riod in which the poll was open (February 16 through 24, 2016). About half (57%) of respondents work at private not-for-profit four-year institutions, 17% work at public four-year institutions, 5% at public two-year institutions, 4% at for-profit institutions, 2% in administrative units (e.g., system offices), and 2% at non-US based universities. The remaining respondents (12%) work in organizations other than colleges and universities. Nearly half (44%) of respondents hold positions that focus on administration, 28% on academic matters, 8% in student affairs, 7% in finance, and 14% in other areas.
