CCSSE Background Information


The Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) was created by the Community College Leadership Program at the University of Texas, Austin.  It was developed in order to assist colleges across the U.S. with assessing the quality of their students' educational experiences and improving the institutional commitment to student satisfaction, student success and increased retention. Each year, students from several hundred community colleges across the U.S. participate in the survey. 

The general CCSSE survey asks students about their college experiences in a number of areas: how they spend their time; what they feel they have gained from their classes; how they assess their relationships and interactions with faculty, counselors, and peers; what kinds of work they are challenged to do; and how effectively the college supports their learning. Additionally, colleges are able to ask institution-specific questions using the custom survey feature. 

Survey results are utilized by participating colleges for assessment of institutional effectiveness in five key performance benchmark areas: (1) Academic challenge, (2) Student effort, (3) Student-faculty interaction, (4) Support for learners, and (5) Active/collaborative learning.

Details about the CCSSE are available at and from a CCSSE Talking Points summary.
