CSU–Pueblo seeks student input for national engagement survey

Colorado State University-Pueblo freshman and senior students have a chance to comment on their experiences at the university via a national survey through May 1.

The survey, given by the National Survey of Student Engagement, measures how CSU-Pueblo performs in indicators such as student-faculty interaction, the level of academic challenge, active and collaborative learning, and enriched educational experiences.

The survey is available to students at the university by invitation from the National Survey of Student Engagement, which sends e-mail invitations and reminders to all 2,000 full and part-time freshmen and seniors at the university.

The survey is conducted each year as part of the University’s voluntary accountability program, which is designed to help the university improve services to students. The university uses data gathered through the survey to make continuous improvements. For example, specific departments may use results about their programs to change the number and length of assignments, the number of tests and quizzes and encourage more relevant projects and student experiences.

“As a part of our continual review of educational opportunities, it is vital to learn about our student’s perceptions about their experiences at the university. For this reason, we hope all students who are invited to participate in this review take a few minutes to let us know their opinions,” said Zav Dadabhoy, dean of student life. “This data is critical in our reviews and plans for future policies, programs, and practices.”

The results of the survey are shared with the university by the national group.

Colorado State University - Pueblo is a regional, comprehensive university emphasizing professional, career-oriented, and applied programs. Displaying excellence in teaching, celebrating diversity, and engaging in service and outreach, CSU-Pueblo is distinguished by access, opportunity, and the overall quality of services provided to its students.
