What is NSSE?

NSSE is the National Survey of Student Engagement. It helps many offices around campus understand the student experience at UC. 

How to Participate

NSSE is sent to Freshmen and Seniors in their UC Email. Look for an email from President Ono. The email will contain a link to the survey and instructions on how to access it and participate. The survey is open now and will be available for the rest of the semester.

National Survey of Student Engagement Results (NSSE)

Student engagement represents two critical features of collegiate quality. The first is the amount of time and effort students put into their studies and other educationally purposeful activities. The second is how the institution deploys its resources and organizes the curriculum and other learning opportunities to get students to participate in activities that decades of research studies show are linked to student learning.
