NSSE 2014 is almost here

Every three years Washburn participates in the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) survey for freshman and senior students so we will be participating again this coming spring.Students will begin receiving e-mail notifications beginning February 18 and they are being encouraged to complete the survey no later than March 31 (they will be entered into a drawing for prizes if they complete by that date) although NSSE’s “drop dead” deadline for completion of the survey is June 1.


This year we will be conducting the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) for the seventh time. We complete this survey of freshmen and seniors every three years to compare our students’ engagement with other students nationally, and to assess how effective our educational practices are at Washburn. The results are posted on the Washburn website and on the College Portrait website for potential students and parents to view. The results are also used as evidence in our University accreditation process.

We are asking for your help in encouraging your freshman and senior students to participate in this online survey which will be sent to students in the spring semester.
