National Survey Data

Stetson University participates in several national student surveys on a rotational basis. Resources and findings are provided below.


The National Survey of Student Engagement measures collegiate quality in terms of 

  1. the amount of time and effort students put into their studies and other educational activities and
  2. how the institution deploys its resources and organizes the curriculum and other learning opportunities to encourage student participation in extra-curricular activities.

Its annual report allows institutions to identify aspects of the undergraduate experience inside and outside the classroom that can be improved through changes in policies and practices to be consistent with best practices in higher education.








The Cooperative Institutional Research Program of the Higher Education Research Institute conducts a series of surveys, including The Freshman Survey, Your First College Year Survey and the College Senior Survey. The CIRP Freshman Survey is designed for administration to incoming first-year students before they start classes at your institution. The instrument collects extensive information that allows for a snapshot of what your incoming students are like before they experience college. The YFCY Survey is the first national survey designed specifically to assess the academic and personal development of students over the first year of college. CS Survey connects academic, civic and diversity outcomes to measure the impact of college. Although the CSS can be used as a stand-alone instrument, it can also be used in conjunction with the CIRP Freshman Survey (TFS) or the Your First College Year Survey (YFCY).
