Let your voice be heard and help make WSU better

Wayne State is committed to supporting students at every level on their path to graduation, and the university is seeking feedback to better understand how we can continue to help students succeed.

On Feb. 10, select freshmen and seniors will receive an email requesting their participation in the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE). NSSE will help WSU review the effectiveness of teaching practices and how students perceive and interact with others on campus.

The survey, which is voluntary and confidential, includes mostly multiple-choice questions and will take approximately 20 to 30 minutes to complete. Students will have until March 20 to take the survey. The NSSE will be conducted by Wayne State's Testing, Evaluation and Research Services.

The NSSE is designed to capture the experience of students who are at the beginning of their educational experience, as well as those nearing graduation. The survey will ask questions about students’ experiences with faculty, academic advisors and support services, in addition to their courses and study habits. The NSSE will be followed by the Faculty Survey of Student Engagement.

“In order to better address the needs of all students, and foster a campus climate that truly promotes student success, it is crucial for us to collect data that captures the student experience.  The best way for us to gather this data, is from students taking the NSSE," said Stuart Baum, WSU Student Senate president. "By taking the NSSE, students can do their part to help improve the student experience for future generations of Warriors."

Additional details about the NSSE can be found at nsse.indiana.edu. For more details on the survey, please contact Laura Woodward at laurawoodward@wayne.edu.
