Undergraduate research has been identified as a High Impact Practice (HIP) that provides many benefits to participants. UTEP has a strong tradition of involving undergraduate in research, scholarly, and creative activities (URSCA).
Because tracking participation has been a challenge in the past, e.g., some students enroll in research or independent study for-credit courses, some receive stipends/wages, and still others are unpaid volunteers, we created the RSRC 4033 course to be the focal point for capturing URSCA participation.
The reports on this page provide yearly analyses of URSCA participation by student major (college and department) and classification, as well as by faculty mentor department and college. A few additional statistical and longitudinal parameters are also provided.
