Faculty are a critical component of many HIPs on campus. Faculty generally agree that HIPs are important, but the level of importance and extent to which faculty are involved in teaching and mentoring students in HIPs, varies.
Over 13,000 faculty from 94 diverse baccalaureate-granting institutions participated in the 2020 administration of the Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE), which included new items related to high-impact practices (HIPs). The survey asks faculty if they find it important that students participate in the following high-impact practices before they graduate: service-learning, learning communities, research with faculty, internships, study abroad, and culminating senior experiences. FSSE also now asks faculty about their involvement in all these HIPs. These data pair well with the responses from students who take NSSE.
