Institutional Reports and Studies
The UTB Student Experience in Brief features an overview of UTB student responses to the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) administered in the spring 2012 semester. NSSE is one of the most comprehensive assessments of effective practices in higher education and UT Brownsville was one of 577 four-year colleges and universities nationwide who participated in the 2012 survey. Results from the survey are summarized into five ‘benchmarks’ of best practices and are contextualized through analysis of overall student satisfaction, key findings on high-impact practices and engagement and finally, through comparison with UT System and Carnegie Class peer institutions.
The UTB and TSC Office of Institutional Research, Planning and Effectiveness (OIRPE) is proud to share its first research brief publication: The UTB and TSC Freshman Student.
This report is the first of a series of briefs to be released by the OIRPE designed to investigate key issues and topics of high relevance to our students, faculty, staff and greater community that can be used to inform decision-making, research and continuous quality improvement.
The UTB and TSC Freshman Student Research Brief profiles key enrollment, biographical and survey data on fall 2012 first-time freshman students as well as provides a historical look at high school, enrollment and academic performance trends of former and current UTB and TSC incoming freshman students.
