National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE)

The NSSE is a standard, widely used survey on learning practices and campus experiences of undergraduates. At SJSU, every three years eligible freshmen and seniors are invited to participate. A companion survey asks faculty members similar questions. Below are summary reports and analyses from SJSU's most recent NSSE administrations. The dashboard provides highlights from the 2014 survey. (A new 2017 version will be shared toward the end of Fall 2017—see our NSSE blog for additional news.)
