About Institutional Profile and Student Data
Information on student engagement
Alverno periodically participates in a student survey sponsored by the National Study of Student Engagement (NSSE). NSSE asks first-year and senior students at hundreds of four-year colleges and universities about student participation in programs and activities that institutions provide for their learning and personal development. The results provide an estimate of how undergraduates spend their time and what they gain from attending college. The Snapshot is a concise collection of key findings from Alverno College’s 2015 participation.
