The Macleans magazine’s National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) results are in and according to Briercrest College and Seminary President Dwayne Uglem, Briercrest is ranked as Saskatchewan’s top school.
“This survey in an indication of what our students and alumni have known for sometime,” said Uglem.
The NSSE is a study of the best educational practices, as well as an assessment of the degree to which each university follows those practices.
By asking the first-year and senior-year students dozens of specific questions about how they spend their time in and out of the classroom, the NSSE is able to rank each participating school.
Uglem said the news of the schools ranking is nothing short of a delight.
“This is the first year Briercrest has been included in the rankings and so we have always wondered how we would compare and this gave us the opportunity to see.
“Our staff and faculty deeply care for our students and treat them as individuals and invest deeply in their lives and I think that’s what contributed to this outcome.”
