Engaging the Institution
Students aren’t the only ones who benefit
 from engagement. If NSSE is to be a
 vehicle for improvement…faculty (and
 staff) need to be engaged…
 …an engaged campus (or department or
 program) would be one in which everyone
 embraces the challenge of continually
 doing better for students.
Institutional Quality: A Nuanced View
• There is value in comparing data about
  institutional performance between institutions,

BUT

• We all know that the institutional averages do
  not represent the experience of all students in
  that institution.
Institutional Quality: A Nuanced View
• For all NSSE benchmarks of effective
  educational practices, less than 10% of the total
  variation is attributable to institutions.

• The lion’s share of the variation is among
  students, within institutions.
Looking within
Examining variation in the student experience
  within an institution.
• How do experiences differ by major or by groups
  of related majors.
• Demographic or other subgroups?
• Who are the least engaged students?

• Even high-performing institutions have work to
  do to improve the experience of all students.
