National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE)

The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) collects information from first-year and senior students about the nature and quality of their undergraduate experience. Since its inception, more than 1,500 bachelor’s degree-granting colleges and universities in the United States and Canada have used NSSE to measure the extent to which students engage in effective educational practices that are empirically linked with learning, personal development, and other desired outcomes such as persistence, satisfaction, and graduation. 

NSSE data are used by faculty, administrators, researchers,  and others for institutional improvement, public reporting, and related purposes. Launched in 2000 by a generous grant from The Pew Charitable Trusts, NSSE has been fully supported by institutional participation fees since 2002. After two years of pilot testing and extensive analysis, 2013 marked the first year of an updated survey instrument and administration options.
