Unlike surveys focused on students' satisfaction with services, the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) focuses on student engagement by examining a wide range of activities in which students are involved.

All undergraduate students in first and fourth year are invited to participate in the survey.

Because of its distinctive focus on what students actually do, NSSE is a powerful tool for assessing a university's contribution to students' learning — it gives faculty, staff and students a variety of ways to think about the student experience. At many universities, including Ryerson, NSSE serves as a centerpiece in sustained improvement efforts.
