Students: Share Your Fisher Experience in National Survey

March 16, 2023

St. John Fisher University is currently participating in the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), which assesses the extent to which students engage in educational practices associated with high levels of learning and development. The survey was launched in late February, and students have a chance to participate until the survey closes in May.

All first-year students and seniors are encouraged to complete the survey, which collects information in several categories including:

  • Participation in educationally purposeful activities;
  • Institutional requirements and the challenging nature of coursework;
  • Perceptions of the college environment;
  • Estimates of educational and personal growth since starting college.

Students from both classes received the survey via email and can also access it through Blackboard.

Kristin Anderson, coordinator of institutional assessment and planning, noted that the data collected will be used to examine the learning experiences of undergraduate students and identify areas of improvement both inside and outside the classroom. The results of the survey will be shared across campus in fall 2023 when data reports become available.

Fisher encourages all students to participate in the NSSE to ensure that their voices are heard and their experiences are considered when making improvements to the University’s educational practices.
