National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) Data

The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) is administered nationally to participating institutions and links to the BCSSE instrument (though UC Merced no longers administers BCSSE). UC Merced participates on a biennial basis during the winter/spring of odd years. All freshmen and seniors invited to participate in the survey. NSSE was not administered at UC Merced in 2013.
