The Faculty Survey of Student Engagement (FSSE) was designed to complement the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), which is administered to undergraduate students. Kenyon administers the FSSE every three years. This instructional staff version (for faculty, instructors, and graduate students who teach) focuses on:
- Instructional staff perceptions of how often students engage in different activities.
- The importance instructional staff place on various areas of learning and development.
- The nature and frequency of instructional staff-student interactions.
- How instructional staff organize their time, both in and out of the classroom.
The COACHE survey of faculty is conducted by the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Until the 2010-11 school year, the survey focused exclusively on tenure-track faculty. Beginning with the 2011-12 school year, the survey went to both tenured and tenure-track faculty. Kenyon's faculty generally participate in this survey every three years.

As such, these organizations offer many and varied services.
