National Survey of Student Engagement:


Freshman and Senior students on our campus will join thousand of students enrolled in four year institutions in responding to a national survey about student engagement and learning. Students will receive an email invitation to participate in the National Survey of Student Engagement on March 4th. This survey is a part of the UW System assessment activities and is an important survey in our own UW Oshkosh University Assessment Plan.The survey assesses several engagement indicators related to academic challenge, learning with peers, experiences with faculty, and campus environment. We are very interested in using results to measure the impact of several campus initiatives related to student support, retention, and curricular reform. Please encourage your freshman and senior student to take advantage of the opportunity to express their opinion about their overall learning experiences at UW Oshkosh. We will share results with the colleges to assist their future planning and accreditation efforts.
