This semester, Temple is participating in the Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE). The FSSE compliments the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), which was last administered to Temple undergraduate students in Spring 2016. Data from these surveys help Temple understand the extent to which undergraduate students are engaged in certain educational practices related to student learning and development; which inform institutional planning and improvement, curricular reform, and the continuous improvement of teaching and learning.

Instructors teaching at least one undergraduate class this semester will receive FSSE invitation emails on: March 28, April 3, April 12 and April 17. To participate, instructors must access the survey through these invitation emails.

To learn more about FSSE, visit their website at: fsse.indiana.edu. For questions about the FSSE administration at Temple, contact Gina Calzaferri, Office of Institutional Research and Assessment, at gina.calzaferri@temple.edu.
