UNG has a strong commitment to building a student-focused environment and to developing students into leaders for a diverse global society. Facilitating success and educational goal attainment for all students and fostering a welcoming environment that values and reflects diversity and inclusion is an important institutional goal. To study its effectiveness in success and educational attainment for all students, and prepare for its reaffirmation with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), UNG participated in five successive NSSE administrations. More specifically, data from NSSE’s Academic Advising Topical Module helped guide the development and monitor overall progress on UNG’s narrative for its recent SACSCOC Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), which is based on improving and expanding advising.
