The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) is a national survey conducted by Indiana University to gather data from four-year institutions in the U.S. and Canada regarding “student participation in programs and activities that institutions provide for their learning and personal development.” You can find more detailed information from the NSSE Survey site at http://nsse.iub.edu/.
The NSSE is broken down into 4 major themes with embedded engagement indicators:
Based on the students that responded to the survey, the university exceeds the average results of other schools participating in the NSSE survey on all Engagement Indicators for first-year students, while the seniors showed significantly higher means on 6 of the 10 engagement indicators compared to our participating peers.
In 2015, WCU had 397 first-year students and 388 seniors completed the survey. See below for an abbreviated table of our respondent characteristics. See the full Respondent Characteristics report for more details.
Nationally, 315,815 students (29% response rate) participated in the survey this year, from 585 institutions in the United States and Canada. Since NSSE’s inception in 1999, more than 2 million students have participated in the survey from almost 1,500 colleges and universities.
