Johnson & Wales University will begin administering the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) and the Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE) across the university this week. First-year and senior students at the university received invitations to participate in this national benchmark survey on March 19 with reminders sent each week through April 16. NSSE annually collects information from students at hundreds of post-secondary institutions from around the United States in an effort to assist institutions better understand the quality of the undergraduate student learning experience. Johnson & Wales University participates in this survey every three years. Results from previous year’s surveys (2013 and 2016) can be found in the Institutional Research external shared departmental information folder on the H drive.
In addition to NSSE, the university will also be participating in the Faculty Survey of Student of Engagement (FSSE). Undergraduate faculty will be invited beginning March 26 with reminders sent each week through April 15 to participate in FSSE. This survey complements NSSE by providing engagement and interaction information about students in various instructional activities from the perception of instructional staff. In comparing student engagement from both the student and instructional perspectives, institutions are able to gain additional insight and understanding about the student learning experience.
Maximum participation of students and faculty is highly encouraged. Questions about either NSSE or FSSE may be directed to George Rezendes, Ph.D., director of institutional research, at 401-598-2029.
