Faculty Survey of Student Engagement

The Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE) is a national tool used to collect perceptions and experiences of college instructors related to student learning and development. Since 2003, faculty from almost 900 universities have participated in this survey. YSU participated in the FSSE for the first time in 2018, and again in 2021. The FSSE is given alongside the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), a survey that collects first-year and senior YSU students' experiences and perceptions. All YSU Faculty, including Lecturers (full and part-time) who were active as of 12/2/20 to teach a Spring 2021 course were invited to participate in the FSSE survey. 

Download a one-page summary of key findings from the 2021 FSSE. The results from the FSSE were analyzed by staff in the Institute for Teaching and Learning (ITL) as both a unique set of data and also in relation to data from the NSSE. Data is made available to faculty, as well as used to create reports for recommendations for ITL training and support, as well as recommendations to campus leadership. You can see an example of how FSSE data was used in combination with NSSE data on page 3 of this 2018 Report
