Graduating seniors provide input regarding their overall satisfaction on a variety of areas including faculty contributions to their educational experience; academic and non-academic support services; campus climate; self-rated knowledge, skills, and development; participation in co-curricular activities and enriching educational experiences.

The Sophomore Survey is administered every three years to all 16 campuses in The University of North Carolina System. The purpose of the survey is to evaluate institutional performance. Students provide information about various aspects of their UNCG experience including overall satisfaction; faculty contributions to their educational experience; academic and non-academic support services; campus climate; self-rated knowledge, skills, and development; participation in co-curricular activities and enriching educational experiences.


National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE)

The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) is administered at UNCG periodically. NSSE annually collects information at hundreds of four-year colleges and universities about first-year and senior students’ participation in programs and activities that institutions provide for their learning and personal development. The results provide an estimate of how undergraduates spend their time and what they gain from attending college.


Beginning College Survey of Student Engagement (BCSSE)

The Beginning College Survey of Student Engagement (BCSSE) was designed to capture data from entering college students' high school academic and co-curricular experiences as well as their expectations for participating in educationally purposeful activities during their first college year. This survey is administered by Student Affairs.


Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) Survey

The Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) survey captures the faculty experience with teaching, science, and research; tenure and promotion; engagement and collegiality in the department; appreciation and recognition; faculty and administrative leadership; and other drivers of faculty satisfaction.


Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE)

The Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE) was designed to complement the NSSE. The instructional staff version focuses on staff perceptions of how often students engage in different activities, the importance staff places on various aspects of learning; the nature of instructional staff and student interaction; and how staff organizes their time, both in and out of the classroom.
