2008 National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE)
The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) is one of the most widely used instruments assessing key aspects of the undergraduate student experience and provides information to colleges, universities, and states for improving undergraduate education and meeting accountability expectations.
By asking students about campus experiences that are linked to learning and personal development - from meetings with professors to participation in extra-curricular activities - we gain a more comprehensive understanding of the impact of the campus educational environment on the quality of students' undergraduate learning experience.
NSSE results are one source for measuring the extent to which UMD actively engages students in effective educational practices. The data point to actions faculty, staff and administrators can take to enhance student engagement and improve institutional performance.
