Student Engagement Surveys

Michigan Tech participates in both the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) and Faculty Survey of Student Engement (FSSE). Student engagement represents two critical features of collegiate quality:

  • the amount of time and effort students put into academic activities, and
  • how the institution uses its resources to encourage student participation in activities that are supported by decades of research to enhance student learning.

About the NSSE

The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) annually collects information from first-year and senior undergraduate students across the country. The results give an estimate of how undergraduates spend their time at college and what they gain from attending. For more information, see the main NSSE Instrument page.

About the FSSE

The Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE) was designed to complement the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), which is administered to undergraduate students. The FSSE version focuses on the perceptions and expectations of instructional staff. For more information about the FSSE, see the main instrument page.
