National Survey of Student Engagement

National Survey of Student Engagement

The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) is an annual survey that seeks to measure student engagement on hundreds of U.S. and Canadian college campuses each year. Student engagement is measured in terms of the amount of time and effort students put into their studies and other educationally purposeful activities, and how the institution invests resources and organizes its curriculum and programs to encourage student participation in activities linked to student learning by decades of research. Select results from NSSE 2020 survey results follow.
