Long-Term Impact

Every three years, the CLS Program conducts a long-term impact survey of its alumni to gain insight into the influences that participation in the program has had on their personal, academic, and professional lives thus far.

In late 2022, American Councils for International Education administered this survey for the fourth time since 2012. The 2022 Long-Term Impact Survey was administered as an online survey to all 7,600 alumni of the CLS Program who participated from 2006 to 2021.

The survey captured responses of a few 2022 alumni, as it was open after the 2022 program ended. Although these respondents were not the primary target of this study, their data were not excluded from the data. In total, 1,019 respondents completed the survey, representing 13% of targeted alumni.
