University to survey student experience


SUNY Cortland students will have a chance to win $50 Auxiliary Services Corporation gift cards just for completing a 20 to 25 minute survey. What could top that?

The university will invite first-year students and seniors to participate in the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) beginning Wednesday, Feb. 12.

The NSSE survey is a valuable source of information to shed light on the time and effort Red Dragons put into their studies and other educationally purposeful activities.

Participation is voluntary, but greatly encouraged.

The survey began in 1998 with funding from the Pew Charitable Trusts and administered by the Indiana University School of Education. More than 1,600 institutions and 5 million students have participated in it since 2000.

Individuals to be contacted — first-year students and seniors — will receive email invitations and periodic reminders from an NSSE address with instructions on how to participate in the online survey.

The survey administrators have optimized it for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.
