Surveys and Assessments: Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE)

About the Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE)

A national survey conducted by the Center for Postsecondary Research at Indiana University, the FSSE is designed to complement the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE). The FSSE examines faculty perceptions of the activities in which students participate, the nature of faculty-student interactions, and how faculty members organize their time. The FSSE is conducted during the spring semester and is distributed to faculty at baccalaureate-degree granting institutions.
