Freshmen and Seniors: Your Voice Counts. We’re Listening.
Give us your feedback on NSSE!
What is the NSSE?
NSSE, the National Survey of Student Engagement, is a questionnaire for college students in schools across the country. Second-semester freshmen and second semester seniors are invited to participate. The survey includes questions about your experience as an undergraduate at UMass Lowell and will take about 15 minutes to complete. Survey responses are confidential.
Why invest my 15 minutes?
The data from the survey (we see cumulative results but no individual surveys) gives key faculty and administrators a snapshot of what the undergraduate experience actually is, compared to University’s goals. We can see how freshmen assess their experience compared to seniors. And we can see how our students’ responses compare to the responses from students at hundreds of other participating schools.
The analysis of survey data influences the decisions designed to improve the undergraduate experience at UMass Lowell.
