Feb. 19: Forum on Student Engagement Survey results
February 13, 2018
Open forum to discuss results of national student engagement survey
Last spring, the University of Delaware asked first-year and senior undergraduate students to participate in the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE).
More than 1,700 students responded providing a wealth of information about their experiences at UD, including their level of academic challenge, how they learn with peers, their interactions with faculty and their experiences in the UD campus environment.
Initial analyses confirm that many UD students experience a world-class education through high rates of participation in high-impact educational practices, such as internships, study abroad and research with faculty. Results also indicate a high level of satisfaction with their overall UD experience, as well as affirm their decision to attend the University of Delaware.
Colleagues from Institutional Research, Student Life and the Center for Teaching and Assessment of Learning will lead a discussion about student engagement at UD at 2:30 p.m., Monday, Feb. 19, in Room 103 of Gore Hall.
The discussion will highlight some of the most useful and interesting information from the NSSE results and present strategies about how UD faculty, staff, and students can use the information to understand UD students and improve their experience at UD. Questions and further discussion are welcome at this open forum.
In advance of this open forum, reports and summaries of responses, including many reports focused on specific groups of students, are available to all UD students, faculty and staff on UD’s Institutional Research website.
UD students, faculty and staff are encouraged to attend and follow up with Institutional Research and Effectiveness for additional information about NSSE and how it can inform discussions and decisions at UD.
