2017 National Survey of Student Engagement

Take the NSSE.  Be heard.

The 2017 NSSE is now closed.

What is the NSSE?

The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) collects information at four-year institutions of higher education about student participation in programs and activities provided for student learning, academic engagement, and personal development.

How will it be administered?

First-year students and graduating seniors are eligible for the NSSE.

Look for an invitation email sent from Dr. Colin Potts, Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education at GT.  This invitation will be sent to your Georgia Tech email address and will contain a link to the NSSE, as well as other information about this project.

Invitations were initially sent march 7th. Additional reminders will be sent throughout March and April.

Why should I spend 15 minutes to complete this survey?

Georgia Tech wants to know what you think of your undergraduate experience, the kinds of activities you engage in, and how you are benefiting from your Georgia Tech education. There is great interest in this study for two reasons:

  • First, GT chose to participate. With this information, faculty and staff can better understand student engagement at Tech and can identify student programs and areas for improvement.
  • Second, people outside GT would like to know how well we are doing— employers, prospective students and their families, alumni, etc.

Survey responses, in aggregate, will be read with great interest and will help to create future program direction at GT.

I get surveyed all the time. How is this survey different?

You’ve heard the expression, ‘think globally, act locally’? This is a national project with immediate local implications: Thousands of students from across the country are participating in the same survey. People are interested in what undergraduate students as a group think about their education. But it’s also important that we find out directly from you about your experience and then share what we learn through comparisons with other colleges and universities. This information – both local and national – will give our faculty and administrators an answer to the question: ‘How well are we doing?’

This survey differs differs from most others you get because what you say will become part of a continuing study that Georgia Tech, as well as hundreds of other colleges and universities, will continue to use for the foreseeable future. So, your answers will not only help your school, but many others as well.

What about the drawing?

Students who participated by midnight on April 30th were be automatically entered to win an iPad Air2, or one of ten retail gift certificates worth $25 each. Notifications have been sent to winners.
