Preserving Culture and Planning for the Future: An Exploration of Student Experiences at Tribal Collegess

Focus Group Guides

CCSSE and SENSE data provide colleges a great deal of information to help identify strengths and areas in need of improvement in the work of increasing student success. These data deliver the “what” about the student experience, but through focus groups, colleges can also learn the “why.” In addition to gathering specific detail about the experiences students and others are having, these structured discussions will also help uncover possible strategies to consider for improvement. These two focus group discussion guides were designed to be used with students, faculty, and staff from tribal colleges.
