NSSE at CSU, Chico
CSU, Chico sees its unique residential setting as an opportunity to nurture learning environments that allow students to more fully engage in activities that contribute to their learning, their development and ultimately their success. Since 2002, Chico has used the NSSE data as a means of exploring the link between student engagement and student success. It has invited faculty, students and administrators to analyze and interpret the Chico data and begin to propose programs to convert data into action.
