Schulich Leads the Way in Student Engagement
Schulich led the polls from start to finish.
The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) is a comprehensive study across first- and fourth-year undergraduate students. Since its first administration in 2000, more than 1,600 North American universities and colleges have participated. It is widely recognized as a preeminent tool for providing benchmarks for the effectiveness of undergraduate education at an institutional level.
“The NSSE provides our undergrads with a platform on which to productively voice their thoughts and opinions in relation to the overall student experience,” said Associate Director, Undergraduate Programs Services, Hollis Sinker. “The information provided allows the faculty, staff, and administration to enact meaningful change, benefitting not only current students, but generations of students to come.”
The results are reported in terms of five key areas: level of academic challenge, active and collaborative learning, student-faculty interaction, enriching educational experiences, and supportive campus environment.
This trophy was awarded to the York Faculty with the highest response rate. Schulich gets to keep the cup – and the bragging rights – until the next NSSE in three years.
