Carleton University wants to improve your educational experience and you can help by completing the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE).

Throughout February and early-March, current first-year and final-year students will receive an email invitation to complete the NSSE. If you missed the email, you can access the survey through your MyCarleton Portal, above the announcements tab.

The results provide a snapshot of how undergraduate students spend their time (in and out of the classroom) and what they gain from attending Carleton. Your participation, and the data collected, helps us identify aspects of the undergraduate experience that can be improved, through policy or process changes.

Those who complete the survey are entered into a draw for one of twenty prizes of $100 on your campus card. Your chances of winning depend on how many students complete the survey; the last time we administered this survey 2,908 students responded.
