Celebrating NSSE’s 20th! We're just getting started.

We are thrilled to commemorate twenty years of NSSE! Since 2000, institutions of all types—from research universities to baccalaureate colleges—have adopted NSSE as an important component of their assessment programs. NSSE has helped focus the national discourse about college quality on teaching and learning and has provided diagnostic, actionable data to inform the improvement of undergraduate education.

Southern Connecticut State University used BCSSE and NSSE data along with other sources of data in predictive modeling to identify the most important predictors of student academic learning, persistence, and graduation outcomes—leading to the creation of the Academic Success Center and other initiatives to advance a student-centered campus culture.
