The VPUA's Office for Research on Student Success (ORSS) is pleased to announce the next installment of its campus lecture series, showcasing research being carried out across UIC to better understand and ultimately improve the success of UIC students.
Bill Hayward, Associate Vice Provost and Director, Institutional Research, will present findings from the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) conducted in the spring of 2015 with UIC undergraduates who were first-time or senior students. NSSE is a national survey that was first launched in 2000 and more than 1,500 universities and colleges have participated. UIC participated in NSSE for the first time in over a decade in 2015, along with more than 500 other institutions. NSSE covers four major student engagement themes: 1) academic challenge, 2) learning with peers, 3) experiences with faculty, and 4) campus environment. Findings from these themes will be presented along with peer comparisons. The event will conclude with a discussion of plans for conducting NSSE in the spring of 2017.
