National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE)

What is the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE)?

NSSE is a survey of college and university students that annually collects information at hundreds of four-year colleges and universities about student participation in programs and activities that institutions provide for their learning and personal development. NSSE doesn’t assess student learning directly, but survey results point to areas where colleges and universities are performing well and aspects of the undergraduate experience that could be improved.

Seniors and freshmen: tell us what you think! Complete the NSSE Survey Starting Tuesday Feb. 25,2014!


If you are a current SCSU freshman or senior, you may receive an invitation in your Southern email to participate in the NSSE initiative.  By completing the NSSE, you will have the chance to have your voice heard and a say at improving programs and services for SCSU students.
