College Hall 412
The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) is a nationally used student survey that is part of Gallaudet’s efforts to assess and strengthen our institutional effectiveness. Other institutional student surveys include the Student Satisfaction Inventory (SSI), the HEDS Teaching Quality Survey, and the Alumni Survey. GU participated in the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014, and 2017.
Currently, GU administers NSSE tri-annually, alternating with other surveys. The next administration will be in 2020.
