UW-Eau Claire senior Jenna Jandrt

Undergraduate research earns top national honors

Thursday, February 2, 2017

While Jenna Jandrt won’t begin her master’s program until the fall, already she is immersed in the research that she expects will shape her graduate studies and make the future career she envisions possible. For the last two years, Jandrt, a Cadott native who will graduate from UW-Eau Claire in May with a degree in psychology, has been researching the ways that Montessori schools intentionally foster socio-emotional development, the way our personalities, emotions and relationships with other people develop and change over our lifetimes. UW-Eau Claire’s success in supporting highly effective undergraduate research programs that benefit students like Jandrt has earned the university top honors from the Council on Undergraduate Research. CUR named UW-Eau Claire the top master’s-level university in the country in providing excellent undergraduate research programs.
