If your department has COVID-19-related content to update, email websystems@pima.edu (Web pages and MyPima) or marketing@pima.edu.

Survey of Entering Student Engagement (SENSE) Underway
On Sept. 21, the College began participating in the Survey of Entering Student Engagement (SENSE),  a national survey of institutional practices and student behaviors measured and tracked during the earliest weeks of college. Students are asked to participate if they meet the following criteria: are new to the College; are not a high school student; are 18 or older and/or are enrolled in a credit course this fall. SENSE results help Pima better understand the experience of students entering the College.

Results from three previous Center for Student Engagement Surveys (SENSE, CCSSE and CCFSSE) are at Student Engagement Surveys. A list of Frequently Asked Questions also is available. If you have additional questions, email the Office of Strategy, Analytics and Research (STAR), pcc-feedback@pima.edu.
