National Survey of Student Engagement NSSE

The National Survey of Student Engagement, or NSSE, is a national survey sent to a sample of first‐year and senior students to determine their relationship with the academic, social, and environmental aspects of the college or university they are attending. NSEE data are used for conducting national research, comparing across institutions, and initiating improvement in individual institutions. The survey is administered annually, and the University of Missouri – Kansas City participates currently on an every third year basis. Significant changes were made to the NSSE in 2013; UMKC’s 2016 administration was the first for this updated format.
