High-Impact Educational Practices (HIPs) are positively associated with student deep learning, self-reported gains, level of academic challenge, collaborative learning, student-faculty interaction, and supportive campus environment*. They have been widely tested and have been shown to be beneficial for college students from many backgrounds.
The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) was completed by 458 first-year and 469 senior students in 2014 at Bucknell. Around 59% of the first-year and 99% of the senior respondents reported that they participated at least one HIP at the time when they finished the survey.
