NSSE and FSSE: National and Faculty Student Engagement Surveys

The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) measures students’ engagement in their university education through questions that explore students' behaviors and experiences. The survey is administered at SF State every three years, and the results are compared with the results at other CSU campuses and at other institutions in the same Carnegie Class.  The Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE) measures faculty perception of students’ engagement in their university education based on faculty experiences teaching undergraduates.  Results from the 2017 administration of the surveys are posted below.  For results and analyses of earlier surveys, please contact SF State's Office of Institutional Research.
