About the Survey
Over two decades of investigating community college student engagement has taught CCCSE that it is crucial for community colleges to consider the student experience to enhance access and foster positive outcomes for students. Therefore, if colleges are to equitably support dually enrolled students, it is imperative that they understand the experiences of those students, especially those who are underrepresented. Thus, in collaboration with an advisory panel of experts, the Dual Enrollment Survey of Student Engagement (DESSE) was created.
