Survey Goal

The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) obtains information from hundreds of four-year colleges and universities nationwide about student participation in programs and activities that institutions provide for learning and personal development. The University of Arizona participants in the NSSE survey every three years to understand how our students’ experiences compare to those of our peers.

Survey Results

NSSE results provide a wealth of data to inform accreditation self-studies, benchmarking efforts, faculty and staff development programs, strategic plans, improvement initiatives, recruitment materials, student support initiatives, and more. The results also provide an understanding of how undergraduate students spend their time and what they gain from attending college. Specifically, the survey gauges students' perceptions related to the following engagement indicators:

  • Academic challenge
  • Learning with peers
  • Experiences with faculty
  • Campus environment
