Student Engagement and Educational Quality: An Agenda for the Next Decade

NSSE Celebrates Its Tenth Anniversary

NSSE commemorated its milestone 10th anniversary by hosting an invitational symposium on October 24-25, 2009, at the Westin Hotel in Indianapolis, IN. "Student Engagement and Educational Quality: An Agenda for the Next Decade," provided an occasion to reflect on the history and growth of NSSE as a widely used institutional assessment tool, examine current practices and research in student engagement, and look ahead to NSSE's role in an increasingly complex environment of assessment, improvement and accountability in higher education.

The one and a half day event brought leading scholars, practitioners, and policymakers together for a series of talks, interactive panels, and presentations. NSSE will incorporate the valuable feedback gained from symposium participants into future planning
