Commerce – Texas A&M University-Commerce has recently released some student survey results. The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) is given to A&M-Commerce freshmen and seniors and focuses on their experiences as it relates to education.

Numbers show students at A&M-Commerce are willing to ask questions in class and generally have good relationships with their professors. Diversity was also a high ranking category among students. Questions were given based on race, religion and political discussion and class assignments in class as well as student interaction among different race and or ethnic groups.

Universities throughout the region have the opportunity to participate in the NSSE, which is conducted every two years.
