The University of North Dakota was one of 157 baccalaureate-granting institutions participating in the 2011 administration of the Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE). This is the third time UND has participated in the FSSE study which was previously administered in 2007. Student engagement is comprised of two components: students' effort and time dedicated to educationally meaningful activities and the extent institutions emphasize effective educational practices. FSSE assesses the level in which UND faculty expect students in their courses to experience these activities.
The study works in conjunction with the National Survey of Student Engagement where similar questions are asked of students. The combination of the two reports are intended to give UND feedback from students and faculty concerning the learning environment, how well students are learning, and what they are getting out of their undergraduate experiences.
