British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer
In 2004, the Dean of Arts and the Dean of Science at UBC partnered with the Arts Undergraduate Society and the Science Undergraduate Society to gain a better understanding of undergraduate student experiences and outcomes. The Undergraduate Student Survey on Student Satisfaction and Engagement (USS) was administered to all Arts and Science students at UBC in April, 2005. This survey area is divided into six key areas: students' academic experience and the level of academic challenge; active and collaborative learning; campus environment and student demographics; student-faculty interaction as well as interactions with teaching assistants and peers; enriching the educational experience; and overall experience/satisfaction. This newsletter reviews highlights of the research recently completed on "Undergraduate Student Survey on Student Satisfaction & Engagement." (Contains 5 figures and 3 tables.)
