Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE)

What is the FSSE?

The FSSE (pronounced “fessie”) is a comprehensive, longitudinal survey, administered by the Faculty Survey of Student Engagement team at Indiana University. This survey gathers information from instructional staff perceptions and expectations regarding student learning and development. For more information about FSSE at Loyola, please see below or contact Otherwise, learn more about the related National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), which is administered to students at the same time as when the FSSE is administered to faculty.

2024 Loyola FSSE Campaign

Loyola regularly participates in the FSSE, typically every three years (e.g., 2012, 2015, 2018). FSSE was not administered in 2021 due to COVID. In March 2024, all instructional faculty who teach undergraduate courses (as of fall 2023 census) at Loyola will be invited to participate in FSSE. Your responses will inform and support evidence-based practice, decision-making, benchmarking, and strategic planning for continuous improvement of the undergraduate educational experience at Loyola.
