Results also show that that engagement in several activities typically requiring face-to-face interaction that declined last year are rebounding in 2022: collaborative learning, discussions with diverse others, student-faculty interaction, perceptions of campus support, and participation in servicing-learning courses, internships, and study abroad.

Annual Results 2021: Three Stories Released
On March 11, 2022 NSSE released the final of three data-informed stories in Engagement Insights—Survey Findings on the Quality of Undergraduate Education, an annual series detailing important and timely NSSE findings. The newest story, Using NSSE Results in Diverse, Equitable, and Inclusive (DEI) Assessment Practices, provides insights about how colleges and universities can use their NSSE results to intentionally consider DEI-related issues in their assessment practices and initiatives. The first installment, The Pandemic and Student Engagement: Trends, Disparities, and Opportunities, presents the stark changes to student engagement for the 2020-2021 academic year, while the second release, Flexible and Adaptable: Teaching and Learning in a Year of Disruption, reveals how instructional practices and student engagement adapted to suit changing campus conditions.
