Get your students involved in research, scholarship or creative activities

Research, scholarship and creative activities are high-impact educational practices that improve student retention, provide skills that employers value, encourage development of skills that facilitate lifelong learning and increase adaptability.

UW Oshkosh is a member of the Wisconsin System Council on Undergraduate Research (WiSCUR), which has the mission “to provide leadership to advance, enhance and expand undergraduate research, scholarship and creative activities across the University of Wisconsin System in order to prepare graduates who can adapt and innovate for the challenges of the future.”

How you can help

  • Encourage students in your classes to consider doing independent study, honors theses or summer projects in your discipline.
  • Know enough about what your colleagues are doing so that you can direct students to appropriate mentors.
  • Maintain a brief statement about the scholarship you pursue and how you involve students. Have this statement on the web accessible through your department’s website (examples: chemistry faculty list; chemistry research page; nursing research office; history student opportunities).
  • Involve students in scholarly and creative projects in your discipline.
  • Send students from your courses to the Celebration of Scholarship event with an assignment to increase awareness of research opportunities on campus.
  • Encourage your students to consider submitting to Oshkosh Scholar.
