National Survey Reports
The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) obtains information about student participation in programs and activities that an institution provides for their learning and personal development. The results provide an estimate of how undergraduates spend their time and what they gain from attending college. Survey items on The National Survey of Student Engagement represent empirically confirmed "good practices" in undergraduate education.

The Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE) was designed to complement the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), which is administered to undergraduate students. The faculty version focuses on; faculty perceptions of how often students engage in different activities. the importance faculty place on various areas of learning and development, the nature and frequency of faculty-student interactions, and how faculty members organize their time, both in and out of the classroom.
BCSSE collects data about entering college students' high school academic and co-curricular experiences, as well as their expectations for participating in educationally purposeful activities during the first college year. BCSSE administration usually takes place prior to the start of fall classes and is designed to be paired with a NSSE administration at the end of the first college year, providing an in-depth understanding of first-year student engagement on our campus.
The Student Satisfaction Inventory provides information to improve the quality of student life and learning. It measures student satisfaction and priorities, showing how satisfied students are as well as what issues are important to them. B-CU uses this data to: guide strategic action planning, strengthen student retention initiatives, meet accreditation requirements, identify areas of strength for institutional marketing, and chart our progress toward our strategic goals.
