National Survey of Student Engagement Reports

Research shows that the best predictor of learning and personal development among college students is the amount of time students spend “engaged” in their education through such elements as student-faculty contact, academic challenge, cooperation among students, and prompt feedback.

The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) is designed to assess the extent to which colleges effectively engage students in their education.

Centre College has participated every year since the survey began in 2000 and is one of only a handful of colleges to have participated every year and made all its NSSE results available to the public.
