President Kenneth Garren gets the final word in a story on the National Survey of Student Engagement in Sunday’s Washington Post. Mari Normyle, assistant dean for academic and career services, was also quoted.
Lynchburg College ranks well above the national average of U.S. colleges and universities in student engagement, according to the 2008 National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE).
The survey measures how colleges and universities engage their students in activities that are positively related to learning and personal development. LC ranked high in all five benchmarks: student-faculty interaction, supportive campus environment, level of academic challenge, active and collaborative learning, and enriching educational experiences.
