Southeastern participated in NSSE in 2002 and 2003. The Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE) asks faculty how much their students engage in the same type of practices and how important they think the practices are. FSSE was first pilot tested in Spring 2003, and Southeastern was one of only 143 schools nation-wide who participated in the pilot.
Beginning in Spring 2013 the University of Louisiana System Office provided resources to all 9 institutions to administer the SSI to students. Southeastern administered this survey to a sample of undergraduate and graduate students. The survey measured student satisfaction (Sat.) and rating of importance (Imp.) for 9 areas of university life. Students were asked to rate 63 items using scale of 1(lowest) through 7(highest).
