Details results from more than 355,000 first-year and senior student attending 622 U.S. colleges and universities that participated in The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) in Spring 2014. Findings indicate few relationships between selectivity and student-faculty interaction. These results bring into question conventional wisdom that certain characteristics of colleges and universities assure a high-quality educational experience.
