A survey of students at the University of Central Arkansas shines a light on what kind of education students feel they are getting from the public institution.
The 2012 National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) student experience survey asked 570 UCA students about academic challenges, learning, student-faculty interaction, educational experiences and campus environment, spokesman Jeff Pitchford said in email Wednesday.
NSSE is an auxiliary unit within the Center for Postsecondary Research (CPR) in the Indiana University School of Education, according to its website.
NSSE releases an annual report on four-year colleges and universities. Students nationwide are surveyed on student participation in programs, activities the schools provide and personal development, according to the group’s website.
