On June 5, the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs received a UW System Award for Excellence at a UW System Board of Regents meeting in Milwaukee. "We are honored to have been nominated for this award by our colleagues at UW-Eau Claire, whom we have the privilege to serve and support in their scholarship, grant-seeking and mentoring of students," said Dr. Karen Havholm, UW-Eau Claire's assistant vice chancellor for research. "There is no student research without the active scholars who mentor them."
Dr. Sanjukta Chaudhuri, associate professor of economics, has been selected as Faculty Fellow in the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs for the 2015-16 academic year. In her role as an ORSP Fellow, Chaudhuri will focus broadly on the topic of assessment of undergraduate research. She is developing a proposal for providing students liberal education skills credit for non-credit research experiences. She also is planning a spring semester Community of Practice with the goal of gathering and developing tools for assessment of student research. This work will build on the activities of previous ORSP faculty fellows who have contributed to various aspects of examination and support for student research mentors.
A team of world-renowned cyberbullying researchers will expand their research to include a study of the prevalence and impact of teen electronic dating violence, a form of cyberbullying that is gaining increasing attention from the media and law enforcement. A $188,776 grant from the Digital Trust Fund, formed by Facebook, will allow the researchers to gather for the first time national data from teens ages 12-17 about cyberbullying and digital forms of teen dating violence, said Dr. Justin Patchin, a professor of criminal justice and co-director of the Cyberbullying Research Center.

Pete Winslow, a senior from Woodbury, Minnesota, was born a congenital amputee, without legs or a right hand —and with only three fingers on his left hand. Funded through a Diversity Mentoring Program grant through the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, the goal of Winslow's research —a collaboration with Dr. Phil Ostrander, professor of music —is to increase awareness and exposure of the trombone as a viable instrument for upper-limb amputees.
