Student Opinion

National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE)

UVU participates in the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE - pronounced "Nessie") each year. First-year students and graduating seniors are invited via campus email to take the web-based survey during Spring semester. The purpose of the survey is to collect information on how undergraduates spend their time and what they gain from attending college. Specifically, at UVU, the results are used to assess students’ levels of engagement, understand how institutional resources, courses, and other learning opportunities facilitate student engagement, and measure UVU’s mission fulfillment.
