The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE)

At University of Maine at Machias, we want our students to have the best educational experience possible, and your participation in the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) helps us by providing vital information about your activities in and out of the classroom. If you are a UMaine Machias first-year student or a senior age 18 or older, please complete the NSSE. The survey should take roughly 15 minutes to complete. Participation is voluntary, and you may skip questions you prefer not to answer.

UMaine and the Indiana Center for Postsecondary Research will make every effort to keep your responses confidential, although absolute confidentiality cannot be guaranteed. Neither UMaine nor the Center will make any public release of information associated with your name while using survey results and related student records for their intended purpose (to improve the college experience and conduct research), but personally identifiable responses may be inspected by college and government organizations when required by law.
