SENSE (Survey of Entering Student Engagement)

What is SENSE?

"The Survey of Entering Student Engagement (SENSE) helps community and technical colleges focus on the "front door" of the college experience. Grounded in research about what works in retaining and supporting entering students, SENSE collects and analyzes data about institutional practices and student behaviors in the earliest weeks of college. These data can help colleges understand students' critical early experiences and improve institutional practices that affect student success in the first college year." --from
