One of the great aspects of SCCC/ATS is the opportunity for students to be involved in the decisions, initiatives, activities, and improvement aspects of the college. Students are being provided with another opportunity for their “voice” to be heard as we seek to improve student learning opportunities here at Seward.

One of the methods in which students can participate is through the Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE). Soon, students in randomly selected classes at Seward and many other community colleges across the nation will have the chance to share their views by completing this survey. Questions focus on how students spend their time, the nature and quality of students’ interactions with faculty members and peers, and what students have gained from their classes and other aspects of their college experience.

If you are a student in a class that is selected to participate in the survey, I encourage you to respond candidly. Your individual responses will remain confidential, but the results of this national survey will be important in helping SCCC/ATS as we examine our educational practices and identify ways that we can improve programs and services for students.

If you are a faculty member whose class has been selected, please encourage your students to respond with their honest input as to how they are engaged in your class, the college services, and learning initiatives.

Thank you for your involvement in another improvement process here at Seward.
