A college education is a transforming experience that affects not only students' knowledge and intellectual skills, but contributes to significant changes in their personal and social development. Research indicates that activities outside the classroom as well as maturational processes can influence students' learning and development as much as what happens in their classes (Ewell, 1993; Light, 1992; Pascarella and Terenzini, 1991; Kuh, 1993). UW-L participated in the NSSE yearly from 1999 to 2004, and in 2006, 2008, and 2011. UW-L will continue participate every 2 to 3 years from this point forward.
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.
