National Survey of Student Engagement


Starting today, thousands of first- and fourth-year York University students will be asked to take part in the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), or “Nessie”. Through NSSE, they’ll be able to contribute their insight and have input into York University’s future direction. We've grown our participation rate from 16% in 2011 to 28% in 2014 – our goal is to reach 35% this time!

What is NSSE?
NSSE stands for the National Survey of Student Engagement. It is widely recognized as a pre-eminent tool for collecting information about academic quality. It is one of the most important surveys York participates in. It gives students the opportunity to tell senior leaders at York about their academic experience: what they are engaged in, what works well or could be improved, and what could make the experience more rewarding.
