NSSE Strategy Task Force

The mandate of the NSSE Strategy Task Force is to use the NSSE results to identify areas where the university might develop curricular, co-curricular or extracurricular strategies to improve student engagement and thereby enhance the quality of the student experience and promote student success. The team will recommend and assist in the implementation of these strategies and monitor progress towards improvement in identified areas. The goal is to ensure an institution-wide response to NSSE that addresses our overall goal of student success.

Additionally, the team will assist faculties and other units as they affect changes guided by NSSE results, and will strive to ensure that these changes are appropriately coordinated so that they contribute to the institution's overall goal.
