If you are planning to administer a survey, please be sure to read the Survey Administration Guidelines to determine what, if any, coordination is required with OIRE.
Please feel free to contact OIRE (303-315-2840 or IR@UCDenver.edu) with any questions or if you would like assistance with your survey project.
Survey Calendar: If you are planning to conduct a survey, please check the
Institutional Survey Schedule to see if there are other surveys being conducted during your planned timeframe. OIRE can work with you to help resolve any conflicts.

2013 NSSE (National Survey of Student Engagement) Administration at the University
of Colorado Denver
||National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE, pronounced “Nessie”) collects information from undergraduates at hundreds of colleges/universities about educational and personal growth programs and student services. The results estimate how students spend their time and what gains are achieved from attending college.|
||First-year students and seniors are asked to participate. Students who complete the NSSE by March 23rd will be entered into a drawing for one of thirty $50 gift cards from Amazon, Best Buy or Target|
||Survey is open February through March 2013.|
||Emails are sent directly to students from the NSSE organization and link directly to the online survey.|
||Insights from the NSSE are important to CU Denver leadership, students, faculty, staff, and leadership.|
||1) Continue good participation: 32% of students responded in 2010.|
2) Use of data by campus community to help inform decisions about programs and services. Prior surveys informed, in part, a more effective New Student Orientation and the creation of the Lynx Center and Admissions Promise program.
