The Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) is designed to provide information on learning-centered indicators pertaining to student engagement for community colleges. Results of the survey are published in a report which allows each participating community college the ability to compare their level of success with other community colleges across the nation.

The report can be used to identify areas in which the college can enhance students’ perception of engagement in light of national benchmarks for educational practice and performance in community colleges, document and improve institutional effectiveness over time, and demonstrate institutional results and progress in implementing good educational practice. The results of this report can be utilized by faculty, student support staff and administrators to identify areas of weakness and design action plans that incorporate strategies for improvement.
