March 11, 2020 — 

The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) is a triennial survey that helps the University of Manitoba plan and institute new initiatives for students, making their experience even more positive. Information gathered in the 2017 edition helped UM institute a new Spiritual Care unit, enhanced substance use harm reduction, improved sexual violence prevention initiatives, enhanced accessibility to Student Counselling Services, expanded the range of student services available on the Bannatyne campus, and more. This year’s edition opened on February 13 and students have until April 24 to have their voice heard. 34% of eligible students have already participated. 

The 15 largest Canadian research-intensive universities also participate in the survey allowing UM to measure its responses against those of similar-sized institutions. The large scale of the survey enables UM to connect with counterparts across the country to share best practices and discuss trends emanating from the survey results.

As an added bonus, all students who complete the survey by April 24, will have the chance to win one $1000 cash prize, one $500 cash prize, one of three $250 prizes, one of five $100 UM Bookstore gift certificates, and one of ten $50 UM Bookstore gift certificates. Students just have to complete the survey and they will be automatically entered into the draw.

Links to complete the survey were sent throughout the past month. Students should check their email to complete the survey and have a chance to win one of the prizes.
