Quote from Jillian Kinzie, NSSE Associate Director

Jillian Kinzie, NSSE Associate Director, “Students at women's colleges report greater gains of self-understanding, acquired through both singular study and through study groups,” Kinzie said. “We typically associate these skills with success, which helps explain why so many women's college graduates achieve positions of leadership in their careers.” Her quote was the result of the finding of a study where data was used from the National Survey of Student Engagement.

(When you understand what the NSSE is all about, you’ll better understand the power of Ms. Kinzie’s words. Instead of me describing what the NSSE does, I’ve taken the liberty of including the definition found on the NSSE’s Web site. “Through its student survey, The College Student Report, NSSE annually collects information at hundreds of four-year colleges and universities about student participation in programs and activities that institutions provide for their learning and personal development. The results provide an estimate of how undergraduates spend their time and what they gain from attending college.”)
