The Survey of Entering Student Engagement (SENSE) is designed to collect and analyze data about institutional practices and student behaviors in the earliest weeks of college. These data can help colleges understand students’ critical early experience. SENSE was administered during the fall 2017 semester see attached executive summary. The next administration of the survey will occur in Fall 2020. SENSE will be administered again in Fall 2020.
