UW-Eau Claire Faculty Survey on Aspects of Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity, Spring 2012
As a first step toward developing a roadmap for UW-Eau Claire to sustain and enhance student opportunities in undergraduate research, faculty were surveyed in spring of 2012. The specific goals of the survey were to describe faculty perceptions about: 1) the types of undergraduate research projects undertaken by faculty, 2) the characteristics of the research relationship between the faculty member and student(s), 3) the effort of faculty in mentoring undergraduate research (i.e., hours, number of projects and students), and 4) the role played by the curriculum in supporting this experience (i.e., infusion of skills, nature of research in the classroom). Survey and report by David Lonzarich, April Bleske-Recheck, Sanchita Hati, Jessica Kraker, and Karen Havholm. View the Survey Results.
ROLE Student Survey of Research Experiences for Undergraduates, Spring 2013

Investigation of Learning Outcomes and Undergraduate Research: Alumni Survey Results, ORSP, Spring 2013
This survey was completed by alumni who did research as undergraduate students between 2005 and 2012. This survey was designed by Heather Johnson Schmitz in order to:
- Investigate alumni perception of the value of their undergraduate research experience.
- Learn about the faculty-student mentoring relationship.
- Establish baseline data.
