Calling all first and final-year students: want a chance to win up to $1000 in cash prizes and help improve the student experience? Now is your chance! 

February 14, 2020 — 

On February 13, the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) was sent to the inboxes of all first and final-year undergrad students. The data collected will help shape the initiatives and plans of the university in the years to come. The survey takes place every three years and has had a direct impact on the student experience. 

“We learn how students spend their time on and off campus, and get their opinion about what works and doesn’t at our university,” says Randy Roller, executive director of the Office of Institutional Analysis who administers the survey. “Having this information really helps us improve life for students at UM.”

The 15 biggest research-intensive universities in Canada participate in the survey, so the data from UM can be measured against similar institutions across the country. They also give the Office of Institutional Analysis a window into many aspects of student life and experience that they wouldn’t otherwise be able to get.
All students who complete the survey by April 24, 2020 will be entered into a draw for a one $1000 cash prize, one $500 prize, one of three $250 prizes, one of five $100 UM Bookstore gift certificates, and one of ten $50 UM Bookstore gift certificates. There is also an additional early-bird draw for a $500 prize for those who complete the survey before March 4. 

Check your UM email to complete the survey.
