This survey collects information about faculty perceptions of the experiences of undergraduate students from institutions across the US and Canada. Respondents are asked to share their perceptions related to their interactions with undergraduate students at Wake Forest University. The findings from this survey are intended to complement the data gathered in the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), which was administered earlier this year. The FSSE focuses on:

  • Faculty perceptions of how often students engage in different activities.
  • The importance faculty place on various areas of learning and development.
  • The nature and frequency of faculty-student interactions.
  • How faculty organize their time, both in and out of the classroom.

The findings from the FSSE will be used at Wake Forest to better understand and improve the student learning experience.

Participation in this survey is completely voluntary. All responses to the survey will be kept confidential and the data collected will be reported in the aggregate. 

The 2024 FSSE Survey will be administered between April 2 and May 13, 2024. Faculty and instructors with a 50% appointment or greater are invited to participate.

This is the second time that Wake Forest University has administered the FSSE. Results from the first FSSE administered in April 2022 can be viewed here. FSSE is being conducted by Wake Forest and the Center for Postsecondary Research (CPR) at Indiana University at Bloomington. The CPR is a national organization that has conducted the FSSE survey since 2003. CPR reports the results of the survey in its own publications, as well as in other venues, such as the Chronicle of Higher Education.
