NSSE 2016

About the 2016 National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE 2.0)

President Mahony describes NSSE as the national gold standard for measuring student experiences; it provides evidence of how well Winthrop efforts compare to other colleges and universities. NSSE collects information at hundreds of four-year colleges and universities about student participation in activities and programs that promote learning and personal development. NSSE provides parents with a way to see how and what students are learning compared to their peers at other schools.

In 2016, three NSSE measures were integrated into Winthrop’s Strategic Planning Metrics including the NSSE Diversity Engagement Indicator, the NSSE Student-Faculty Interaction Engagement Indicator, and seniors involved in at least two High Impact Practices (HIPS) that enrich learning experiences and help students develop employer-desired skills like problem solving, teamwork, communication skills, personal and social responsibility, and critical thinking.
