Impact of Student Engagement by Level of Interaction on Campus
This study examines how the institutional factors and individual characteristics affect student engagement by level of interaction on campus. College students interact with other campus members for their academic goals, and these relationships affect their diverse college activities within the specific learning environment that the institution provides. This paper shows how the different levels of interaction make a difference in affecting student engagement and examines what the role of institutional and individual factors are. The results indicate that institutional and individual factors are associated with student engagement in different ways, and their effect depends on the type of campus members involved and the level of interaction. This implies that a diverse set of possible approaches to improving student engagement for academic goals are required, and the following discussion provides further research directions to adopt more diversified supporting strategies for better student engagement.
