ORSP prestigious awards

In ORSP, we work to provide service to students and faculty across all disciplines on the University of WI-Eau Claire's campus; however, it's always nice to be recognized. Please see below for more information about the prestigious awards that our office has received, or helped the University receive.

CUR Campus-wide Award for Undergraduate Research Accomplishments (AURA)

This award recognizes higher-education institutions that have successfully implemented some of the undergraduate research characteristics of excellence, have devised exemplary programs to provide high-quality research experiences of undergraduates, and have evaluated the success of these programs. Please see the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) website and characteristics document for more information.
