In October of 2001 as part of the "College to Career Study" at the Institute for Policy Research, Northwestern University, a
survey was administered to ITT Tech students in Mt Prospect, IL. One of the findings of the study is that it appears that ITT
Tech has done an exceptional job for its female students.
"Although popular stereotypes might raise concerns about how well females would perform in the technical fields taught at ITT
Tech, the study finds that women are doing very well."
"Moreover, women at ITT Tech are a true success story, as they have higher college grade point averages than
both men and women in any of the other public and private schools that were surveyed."
The study states "ITT Tech is particularly successful in motivating and encouraging women in their studies."
