Institutional Analysis - National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE)


The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) collects information at hundreds of four-year colleges and universities about undergraduate participation in programs and activities.  UB typically participates on a 3-year cycle. The results provide an estimate of how much time undergraduate students spend on academic-related activities and what they do with their remaining time. Additionally, it provides information on students' perception of institutional priorities and their educational outcomes.


 Here, you will find the results of the most recent survey (Spring 2011). Questions are grouped according to similarity in the first drop-down box and results can be customized with the filters in the right-hand column.  The next administration of the NSSE is planned for Spring 2014.  Should you have further inquiries, please contact our office:
