The Survey of Entering Student Engagement (SENSE), a product and service of the Center for Community College Student Engagement, helps community colleges discover why some entering students persist and succeed while others are not retained.  Additional information is located on the SENSE website explaining the benchmark survey elements.

This survey was first administered in 2009 with an administration cycle of every three years as part of the Oregon consortium.
