Annual Results Release: The LRCs of Advising
NSSE is pleased to release the second of five data-informed stories, in Engagement Insights—Survey Findings on the Quality of Undergraduate Education, an annual series detailing important and timely NSSE findings.
The LRCs of Advising: Listening, Respecting, and Caring, uses results from the Academic Advising Topical Module to examine the extent to which advisors develop positive relationships with students through active listening, empathy, and cultural sensitivity.
The first release, Building a Sense of Community for All, examines the relationships between students’ sense of belonging (an addition to the 2020 survey) with engagement, perceived gains, and persistence.
Annual results findings are complemented by a public Tableau dashboard and examples from colleges and universities demonstrating their use of NSSE results.
