At Cameron University, we recognize that students who are actively involved in their own learning and development are more likely to be successful in college. Cameron students may participate in study abroad trips, undergraduate research, workshops on skills for academic success, student organizations, leadership training, community service opportunities, and wellness activities. Cameron University measures the effectiveness of these, and other, experiences in a variety of ways. Each program in Student Services and Enrollment Management annually assesses outcomes relating to student experiences, student learning, and student satisfaction using a variety of assessment measures. Additionally, every three years, the university administers the National Survey on Student Engagement. All data collected is analyzed and used to guide improvements in the student experience, student learning, and student satisfaction at Cameron University.
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 (NSSE). 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.
