Volume 2 of the Lessons from the Field series highlights new examples of how institutions are using NSSE data to enhance undergraduate teaching and learning. In this volume, we feature institutions that continue to move from collecting data to taking action.
Snapshot of Institutional Data Use
The University of Akron used NSSE results for its Foundations of Excellence self-study to help identify areas for improvement. These included developing and distributing a campus-wide first-year philosophy; creating more exposure to diversity in first-year and general education courses; more professional development for faculty and administrators who work with first-year students; and others.
