We invite all institutions using SASSE to participate in the LSSE. Student Engagement staff handles all aspects of survey administration, including invitations, follow-up messages, delivery of the online survey, compilations of data, and analysis of results.

  • LSSE will be administered from August to September at participating universities.
  • In order to administer LSSE, an institution must also administer SASSE.
  • Lecturer responses are anonymous to their institutions.

The timeline below approximates the general activities of the 12-month cycle:

Registration and planning: January to May
