According to the 2022 National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), under-represented minority (URM) freshmen at OU sought help from academic advising and learning support services more often than non-URM freshmen. Non-URM students were more likely to get help from friends or other students. First-generation freshmen students sought more help than their counterparts and were more likely to seek help from faculty.
