Pittsburg State University is focused on the academic success of its students and creating an atmosphere in which students can achieve their potential. In an effort to provide meaningful information about our students’ success during their time on campus, Pittsburg State University actively participates in the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE). This survey asks a random sample of our students about their learning activities in courses, degree programs, and student clubs or organizations. The topics explored on the NSSE have been linked to previous research on student success in college.
Institutions participating in the VSA program measure student involvement on campus using one of four national surveys. Results from the one survey are reported for a common set of questions selected as part of VSA. Following are the selected results from the National Survey of Student Engagement v2 (NSSE2). The questions have been grouped together in categories that are known to contribute to student learning and development. The results reported below are based on the responses of seniors who participated in the survey.
