Annual Results Release: Building a Sense of Community for All
NSSE is pleased to release the first 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 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. These findings are complemented by a public Tableau dashboard, a facilitation guide to assist dissemination to varied stakeholders, and examples from colleges and universities demonstrating their use of NSSE results related to belonging in their improvement efforts.
