WHAT THIS SURVEY IS ABOUT
We cordially invite you to participate in the 2020 Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE). The information you and other instructional staff members on your campus provide will help identify areas of strength and improvement, as well as lead to constructive discussions related to teaching, learning, and the quality of your students' educational experience.

The Faculty Survey of Student Engagement is a project coordinated by the Center for Postsecondary Research at Indiana University Bloomington.
TAKING THE SURVEY
The survey takes about 18-25 minutes to complete. It is designed to measure instructional staff expectations regarding the extent to which students at your institution engage in educational practices empirically linked to high levels of learning and development.
Your school and the Center will make every effort to keep your responses confidential, although absolute confidentiality cannot be guaranteed. Personally identifying information (e.g., name or email address) will not be included in the data sent from the Center to your institution. No information associated with your name will ever be released publicly, but personally identifiable responses may be inspected by university and government organizations when required by law. Your participation in this study is voluntary and you may refuse to participate without penalty.
If you have technical problems completing the survey, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-877-295-3064. If you have questions about the study, please contact Thomas Nelson Laird by email or by phone (812-856-5824).

Starting with FSSE 2013, sets of items have been grouped within several scales. These scales are organized within four themes that parallel engagement themes on the National Survey of Student Engagement. See more details about the FSSE Scales and their component items.
Participating faculty are invited to provide their disciplinary appointment and general academic discipline of their selected course section. Participating institutions are able to customize the disciplinary area groupings for the Disciplinary Area Report. See sample reports for more details on the default categorizations and list of disciplines and codes.
Participating Canadian institutions receive the same FSSE instrument as participants in the U.S. with three exceptions. Item #13 lists the course divisions as "Lower division (mostly 1st year or 2nd year)" and "Upper division (mostly 3rd year or 4th year students). Item #44 (citizenship status) and #45 (Racial/Ethnic Identification) do not appear on the Canadian instrument as these demographics would not apply in a Canadian context.
