The NSSE Institute for Effective Educational Practice
All colleges and universities can benefit from educationally effective policies and practices that have been successfully implemented at similar types of institutions. The Institute works with institutions and other organizations to:
- collect and disseminate research on promising practices
- assist schools in using data for institutional improvement and student success initiatives.
- help organizations identify and adapt distinctive qualities that characterize their successful high-performing counterparts.
A primary goal of the Institute is to draw upon current and future research initiatives to help faculty, administrators, and governing board members effectively link information about student experiences to efforts to improve academic programs and support services. NSSE survey results point to student behaviors and institutional actions that can be implemented quickly to improve the student experience.
The NSSE Institute works to develop practical solutions for institutional improvement and staff work directly with colleges and universities to offer the following services:
- Campus Audits
- Ongoing Research and Evaluation
