Saint Paul College Ranks Highly on Student Engagement

Saint Paul College received the results of the 2013 Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) this week. The CCSSE is a nationally-normed survey of students’ engagement with their coursework. We are pleased to announce that the report rated our institution very highly among other Community Colleges in the nation. Benchmark measures on the CCSSE include: Active and Collaborative Learning, Student Effort, Academic Challenge, Student-Faculty Interactions, and Support for Learners. A comparison of our most recent scores follows. As you will see, Saint Paul College consistently rates higher than other community colleges in these areas. We are proud to have such a dedicated and knowledgeable team at our college. We provide our students with a remarkable level of service, and it is clear that the students’ opinions recognize our efforts.
