National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE)

Attention all first-year and senior undergraduate students enrolled in the spring semester: you are invited to participate in NSSE 2020!  Your opinion matters!

What is NSSE?

Since 2000, the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) has gathered data on the first-year and senior student experience at colleges and universities across the United States and Canada. The experience includes the amount of time and effort students put into their studies and other educationally purposeful activities, and how the institution deploys its resources and organizes the curriculum and other learning opportunities.  More detailed information is available at
