National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE)

The NSSE is an inquiry into the extent to which students at four-year colleges and universities engage in an array of good educational practices.  Many of the questionnaire items deal with student behaviors that educational researchers have found to be highly correlated with the intense learning and personal development that are hallmarks of a meaningful college education.

CSUSM has participated in the NSSE survey since 2001, and the survey is now administered biennially to freshmen and graduating seniors. To view a summary of recent findings, click on the name of the report for the desired year.
