- Living Environments & Engagement: Results from a Multi-Campus Study
As housing professionals adapt to contemporary changes in on-campus living, we present a study by the National Survey of Student Engagement (in collaboration with ACUHO-I) about the relationship between facets of the living environment with engagement and perceived growth in learning, with an emphasis on programming, staffing, and perceived safety and support. Results will be disaggregated by underrepresented subgroups, and discussion will focus on how the results inform residence life practice.

- How Residence Life Professionals Can Use Engagement Data
Student affairs professionals (including residence life) are often expected to incorporate assessment and evidence-based practices in their work. One approach is to take advantage of existing data and assessment resources such as from the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE). This session introduces NSSE’s administration, data, and reports, and demonstrates how staff can use engagement data to promote improvements within residence life.
