National Survey of Student Engagement
The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) collects information from first-year and senior students about the quality of their undergraduate experience, including student engagement in educational practices associated with high levels of learning and development. NSSE was developed and is administered by the Indiana University Center for Postsecondary Research. LSU regularly participates in NSSE, and the data are included in the College Portrait for the Voluntary System of Accountability.

High Impact Practices (HIPs) Summary
HIPs are undergraduate opportunities and experiences associated with high levels of student learning and retention. These include service learning, learning communities, research with faculty, internship or field experience, study abroad, and culminating senior experience. Overall, more LSU seniors reporting having participated in 2 or more HIPs as compared to our peers. See NSSE 2018 High-Impact Practices Participation Comparisons for a summary of how LSU compares to its SEC, Carnegie Class, and SREB peers.
