Roadrunner Food Pantry entrywayIn an effort to increase participation in the National Survey of Student Engagement, the Office of Academic Affairs is donating $2 to the Roadrunner Food Pantry for every student survey completed. Nearly $1,400 has been raised since the survey opened this year. Look for updates on donations generated on the sign outside the Roadrunner Food Pantry.

Open to first-year and senior students, the NSSE is a key tool for helping improve the student experience. It measures not only the time and effort students dedicate to academic development but also how successfully they’re engaging with campus resources, activities and personal-development opportunities. The data gathered highlight areas of student-engagement success and opportunity, helping institutions develop high-impact practices and improved policy.

Eligible Metropolitan State University of Denver students received a survey link directly from the NSSE in February, with the most recent reminder emailed to students April 2. The 20-minute survey will remain open through mid-May.

Faculty and staff are encouraged to announce the survey before or at the close of classes and to spread the word among student workers. For more details, email Lou Moss, program manager, Office of Curriculum and Academic Effectiveness, or Kim Barron, director of Academic Effectiveness, or visit the Academic Effectiveness website.
