National Survey of Student Engagement

At Pratt Institute we want our students to have the best educational experience possible, and the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) helps by providing vital information about activities in and out of the classroom. Your participation is critical, so we hope you will complete NSSE—an opportunity available to undergraduate senior students.

Students who complete the survey by May 22nd will be in the running to win: 

  • Swag-points (to be redeemed at the Pratt Store)

  • 4 movie tickets worth $15 each  

  • 2 Broadway tickets worth $120 each

For more information about the NSSE visit their website. If you have other questions, please contact Institutional Research at or 718-399-4509.

Thank you in advance for taking a few moments to reflect on your experiences and help us strengthen Pratt Institute!
