Student Research Projects

Section 1


EUI has a community site in the Illinois Digital Environment for Access to Learning and Scholarship. There student projects are archived to serve future researchers, both EUI-affiliated and others, as they pursue their own studies on the university. The site is easily searched and provides a wealth of data from students on issues such as Diversity on Campus/Equity and Access, Student Learning, and The University and the Community. > go to IDEALS site
