Survey participants are primarily first-year and senior bachelor's degree-seeking students at your school as well as other colleges and universities.
Taking the Survey
The survey asks you about your college experiences, how you spend your time, what you have gained from college, and your interactions with peers, faculty, and others. Filling out the questionnaire takes about 15 minutes. Your participation is completely voluntary. Declining participation or not completing the survey will not result in any penalty or loss of benefits.
This survey is conducted in a partnership between your school and the Indiana University Center for Postsecondary Research. The Center will send your survey responses to your school for institutional assessment, improvement, and research.
Your school and the Center will make every effort to keep your responses confidential, although absolute confidentiality cannot be guaranteed. Neither your college nor the Center will make any public release of information associated with your name while using survey results and related student records for their intended purpose (to improve the college experience and conduct research), but personally identifiable responses may be inspected by college and government organizations when required by law.
If you have any questions at any time about the study or the procedures, you may contact the National Survey of Student Engagement at email@example.com or by calling 812-856-5824.
