The Center for Community College Student Engagement, a research and service initiative of the Community College Leadership Program in the College of Education at The University of Texas at Austin, provides important resources for assessing and improving educational practice in community colleges.
The Center for Community College Student Engagement (CCCSE) provides information about effective educational practice in community colleges and assists institutions and policymakers in using that information to promote improvements in student learning, persistence, and attainment.
The Center conducts a collection of national surveys: the Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE), the Survey of Entering Student Engagement (SENSE), the Community College Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (CCFSSE) and—new in 2011—the Community College Institutional Survey of Promising Practices for Student Engagement and Success.

The Center provides a variety of on-site professional development, training and technical assistance options, as well as an annual Entering Student Success Institute (ESSI) and the annual CCCSE Workshop, held in conjunction with NISOD.
