In the spirit of student engagement, the aim of this presentation is to present preliminary findings of an Undergraduate Research and Inquiry (URI) study recently undertaken. In this qualitative study, we focus on exploring the Institution’s perspective and student experiences of URI, and in particular on the diverse meanings across the University. In-depth interviews were used to explore key informant faculty perspectives (n=36) and focus groups (n=32) were conducted to explore student’s perceptions of, and experiences with URI. Preliminary results will highlight the diverse meanings of URI and participants will be encouraged to discuss URI at their own Institutions.
