The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) was introduced nationwide in 2000 and was developed as a measure of students' engagement in empirically derived good educational practices. OSU participated for the first time in 2002, and has participated eight times.

Current NSSE Administration - 2021

OSU is participating in NSSE again in 2021. From April 12 through May 12, 2021 all first time, full-time, Freshmen students, and spring graduation candidates who were notified on April 6th of their graduation status will receive an email inviting them to take the short NSSE survey. Students in the target population may also visit nssesurvey.org; enter their email address, and access the survey following a quick verification process.

Faculty and staff are asked to encourage students to participate in this important study, so we can learn more about our students’ educational experiences at OSU.

For more information about NSSE and why the University is participating, contact JoAnne Bunnage or Daniel Lopez-Cevallos.
