2020-2021 Illini Success Report
March 9, 2022 11:56 AM

Dear Faculty, Staff and Students,

The Illini Success team has just released this year’s edition of the Illini Success report, an annual review of post-graduation destinations of our recent bachelor’s degree graduates. Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our graduates still found jobs, enrolled in graduate school or began volunteer programs on par with previous years.

Here are a few of the highlights from the new report:

  • 94% of our 2020-2021 graduates secured a job, graduate program or volunteer opportunity within six months of graduation.
  • 75% of in-state graduates who began a job or graduate program said they remained in Illinois for those opportunities.
  • $68,701 is the average salary for full-time employed graduates.

The full report can be viewed on the Illini Success website. An accessible version of the report is available by contacting the Illini Success team at illinisuccess@illinois.edu.

It is gratifying to see that an Illinois degree provided so many of our recent graduates with a solid foundation for these critical first steps in their future careers. This is fantastic news that illustrates the impact of an Illinois degree. I am incredibly proud of our recent graduates, and I am extremely thankful for our faculty and staff members who ensure that our students succeed.

I hope you will all join me in celebrating the success of our recent graduates.


Robert J. Jones
